We will be wrapping up the year 2016 in just a few days and as I think back over the events of the year, I get pretty tired. Actually, I feel that the world around me was moving so fast I couldn’t even keep up, like I was treading water but going nowhere. Was it like that for you?
We are going into this brand new year of new hopes and dreams and I know I should be excited and ready for it, but I don’t really feel that expectant joy. Frankly, I’m tired and worn out – and the year hasn’t even begun! I don’t think it was any coincidence that God laid on my heart the verses for this week. “Come to me, all of you who are weary and carry heavy burdens, and I will give you rest.” I need what God has to say. I need rest. Do you too?
