Life may drag one down more times than one cares to remember, and so often we may stumble through our days tired, worn, and heavy. Even though a holiday may help, what’s meant in this passage here in Matthew is much more profound in suggesting that unlike holidays, the Lord, His word, His truth and His arms, are always open to receive us. Furthermore, His house is also always open. For it is important to make time for fellowship with The LORD wherever possible.
For the more time one may spend with, within and under The Wing ofTheMOST High, the more one may feel one’s spirit rested, and the stronger one may become in facing the world again.
And we pray:
God, I bring You my soul, heavy with burden but forever open to Your Word. Where I tire, give me rest. Give me Your house and Your teachings to heal my broken bones and tired body, through igniting again in me the light within my heart. Give me strength again and again, where I falter and fail, for I wish to serve and labor only under You Lord, and wish to speak only Your name. Amen.
