If you’re having trouble resting, it’s not okay.

“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.” — Jesus (Matthew 11:29)

I’ve been struggling to find “rest.” I’ve justified it as a busy season; hustle; intensity; creating something new.

I’ve been wrong.

Even in the seasons of our hardest work, longest hours, and most crucial efforts… we can experience rest. We must.

And if we can’t, it’s because we won’t. And if we won’t, it’s because we don’t trust God. More on this tomorrow.

For today, let’s just pray for peace and rest for our souls.
