come to Me

come to Me

Come to Me, all who are weary and heavy-laden, and I will give you rest.

Yes, Jesus. Will and I are tired. It’s a tired born of good things – ministry calls – and yet, we feel heavy-laden. So we come to you. In this quiet place, we sit … and wait.

Secretly, we wish for a quick pep talk and a pat on the back. Thinking you’re our coach in ministry. We want an encouraging word and a game plan. But no. You’re not a coach. You’re a Savior.

So, Jesus, save us from our weariness. Rescue us from the heavy burdens. Release us from the anxiety of wondering what people think. Renew our spirits. Nurture our souls. You are our Savior. Bring us rest.

And as the sun rises, we will count this day as one more chance to come to You.
