Tired?

"Come to Me, all who are weary and heavy-laden, and I will give you rest."   Matthew 11:28

This time of the year, teachers get very tired. Tired of the stress....tired of the pressure from testing requirements....tired of being tired. We've not had our Spring Break yet, so we're especially tired. CRCT is coming up soon, so the pressure is at its highest point. Jesus Christ promises us that if we will come to Him, He will carry our burdens and provide rest for our weary bodies and souls. We just have to lean on Him. We love it when our little ones want to climb up in our lap and snuggle, resting their head on our chest. That's a picture of what we have with our Heavenly Father. He'd like us to climb on His lap and lay our head on His chest.  What a peaceful rest that must be!

Father, I thank You so much for this beautiful rainy, stormy day. As bad as the weather may get, we need the rain it brings. Lord, so many of us are weary to the point of exhaustion. Please lift us up and carry our burdens. Let us rest on your lap. I love You. Amen and amen.
