rest and unrest


We were made for rest, not unrest.  Our hearts were designed to find their rest in God.  Thus, deep soul rest was intended to be our natural state.  But for most of us, true rest is an anomaly rather than a normality.  The rest our souls so deeply long for—the rest our souls were actually created for—is far from our daily reality.  That is why Jesus comes to each of us and says: “Come to me and I will give you rest.  Take my yoke upon you, for it fits you perfectly.  I made it just for you and it is the only thing that can make you your truest and best self.  In fact, I am the only one—including you—who even knows who that really is.  So come to me and know the rest and the peace and the wholeness of being who and what you were created to be.  Then you can stop trying so hard and can be free to be your true self.”
