“Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest.”

Matthew 11:28

Many of us by Friday feel completely exhausted – mentally, physically, emotionally, and spiritually.

Yet the weekend; supposedly a time to rest; is full of activities like funerals and weddings and parties and all kinds of outings that often add to our weariness, leaving little room for true rest.

Perhaps today we are weary too…but we don’t have to bear it alone. Jesus has invited us to come to Him to give us the rest we so desperately need.

He does not promise to take away all our troubles. But He does promise rest for our soul, which is the most important rest of all.

Let us take Him up on His offer and spend time with Him this weekend, and we will find in Him the strength and courage to meet the challenges of next week. It is guaranteed!


Dear God, I am exhausted from bearing more than I should have all week. Open my eyes and show me that what I need is the rest You came to bring. Amen.
