Lost & Found ♥

"Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. 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. For my yoke is easy and my burden is light." 
- Matthew 11:28-30

I came across this verse earlier today. And it reminded me of all the times I've felt burnt out and thought that going away and escaping was the answer. Often, when we reach rock bottom, or when we're experiencing a difficult time in our lives, we tend to think that running away solves it all. I know I did. It was so easy. Who wouldn't like to take the easiest way out? But the truth is, it isn't. It's just a temporary break from reality. Once we're done taking a break from it all, we would eventually have to come back and face what we have left in the first place.

In this passage, God asks us to walk with Him. Come to Him and work with Him to recover our lives. What do you think it'll be like to walk and work with Him? It doesn't mean that by walking with Him you will not face any storms in your life. You will. But believe that He'll always guide and lead you to where you need to be. He has your best interests at heart, so what He has planned for you will eventually prevail. God won't put you through anything that you can't handle. Because if He's going to put you through it, He'll definitely see you through. Like Proverbs 3:6 says, In all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make straight your paths. So have faith in Him. Talk to Him. Walk with Him. Because when you do, He will deliver :)

Love it. It takes a lot of faith to not run away. I think when you're at rock-bottom, looking for refuge in God can be both the easiest and the hardest thing to do, even when you know on a factual level that His rest is what you need; that's why it requires faith. And I also like this translation of the passage way more than the last one. I think Jesus is very clear that He is giving rest to our souls, not a promise for an easy life. So long as we walk with Him, no matter what we experience or suffer, our souls can find peace in Him who gives us rest.
