Where do you turn when you are weary from the everyday tasks of living? Now that we are in the holiday season we can become tired and stressed. We all look forward to time with our family but even that causes one to be weary. So, where do you turn for relief?
In Matthew 11:12 Jesus said, “Come to me all of you who are weary and heavy laden and I will give you rest.” This is definitely good advice and should be embraced by all.
The next time you feel yourself overwhelmed with holiday activities and family visits take some time to be with the Lord. His word is true and will not let you down. You can count on it.
Enter His gates with thanksgiving and His courts with praise; Give thanks to Him and praise His name. — Psalm 100:4
Friends, we’re entering a season that requires our whole-hearted attention, our riveted focus. This is important. For our souls. For our hearts. For our faith. So we don’t miss out on the beauty God intends for us. Right here. Right now.
This is a clarion call to thankfulness, a charge to find joy, and strength, and hope in our daily lives, a beckoning to pour out our gratitude to God for His goodness and for His wild love for us.
As you gather with friends and family to celebrate the holidays, remember, it is God who should receive our entire devotion. His love for us extends beyond imagination. His love for us is everlasting and without any strings attached.
When you pray at Thanksgiving for what you’re thankful for, put God’s love for you and the world at the top of your list.
