Unlimited: Rest in Jesus

Come to me, all you who are struggling hard and carrying heavy loads, and I will give you rest (Matthew 11:28, CEB).

Recently, I went on a 17-kilometre hike down into a valley and back up again. Going down was easy but going up was another story! I’m not as fit or strong as I used to be! That night, I slept really, really well!

While most days aren’t as physically tough as that, every day we live can be mentally and emotionally tough. Over time, if we are relying only on our own strength, our hearts will wither and die within us.

Jesus knows you. He knows you as a physical being. He knows you as a mental being, and he knows you as a spiritual being. And he knows that you don’t only need rest for your body,  you also need rest for your mind, and especially for your spirit.

This ends when you find your rest in Jesus

Your endless search for identity, acceptance, and love will end when you find your rest in Jesus. You will find your ultimate goal. You will find what you were made for. Striving to be accepted based on your performance will end when you find your rest in Jesus.

That’s why Jesus invites you to come to him. You will still struggle in this life. There will still be loads you have to carry. But all will be possible, and all will be a joy when you are well-rested in Christ.

I feel emotional lately, nothing is making sense in my life anymore. I need Jesus, I need to get back to the things us to be worship, praising thanksgiving. Just appreciating everything about our Lord.

Experience is the best teacher. Some times we go through strungles helplessly and hopelessly in a manner to overcome excruciating hardships but rather in the same manner we end up in tears and regrets but the only hope is Jesus wants to help us to carry our burdens, to relieve us from anxieties and the pains that we bear . I like the connotation of the message.

His__ Love_ I don't even know where to begin here . There is a lot about love in the Bible and much of it is most perfectly displayed in the Son of God ,Jesus Christ. The Apostle John 13:21-30 John 18:15-18 John19:26-27)and love later wrote that . we have come to know and to believe the love that God has for us. God is love,and whoever abides in love abides in God and God abides in him 1st John 4:16)but John doesn't describe love as a feeling but ,"the love of God sent his only Son into the world, so that we might live through him"(1st John 4:9)The love of God was displayed, on by words,but by action at the cross.
