“Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy and my burden is light” (Matt 11:28-30, NIV).
It’s summer! Take a step back, give yourself a break, and create some memories for yourself and your family.
I mean it. You need to take a step back and rest. Jesus’ life models this for us. He was very busy and surrounded by needs, but He purposefully took times of rest.
Do whatever it takes to make rest happen. If you need help working out how to practically do it, reach out to your church leaders, your area pastor or your district team.
We talk a lot about mission and reaching a broken world, but we will never reach that world if we are not resting as we work. Let the pace slow and take some time off. Search for and grab hold of the call to “rest” that Jesus has gifted to us.
