lunch break

Taking my lunch break right now.
It's been a busy, grueling work day.
Collapsing in a comfy position and elevating my feet up.
Heaving a big sigh and looking around at the many blessings that surround me.
Remembering all God provides.
Refocusing off the temporary of today and pausing to remember all God has sacrificed so that I might live freely in His love.
Mmmmmmmmmm. Yes, I love LOVE!

Opening my Bible and tasting the sweetness of words I know so well...

“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)

What a comfort!
He's still here.
He's still with me and able to take on all my weights and burdens.
He's still faithfully available to offer me His gift... His LOVE.
How wonderful to know that I am my Beloved's and He is mine!
I'll say it again... Ahhhhhhhhhh!

Isn't life easier with God's assurances to rest upon?
Isn't today better when you realize that Jesus offers peace for your soul?
Yes, Lord... I'll gladly take on Your yoke.
I'll happily learn whatever You want to teach me.
For I want to receive Your rest!
I want to know You more intimately, even in this short lunch break.
Teach me, Lord. I've come to learn.
Teach me and use me for Your glory forever and ever!

How has your day been so far, believer?
Are you weary or burdened?
I encourage you to take a moment to pause in His splendor!
Take on His yoke.
And be mindful to love His LOVE this very hour!
