Life

My Rest.

Jesus.

The mention of your name brings me peace.  Peace for my searching soul that is constantly thirsty.  I look to the right or the left before I turn to You.  My searching always ends at your feet. The deep need in my bones has always been You.  You are the one thing that will satisfy.  I am nothing.  I am a nobody that cannot do anything of value without You.  I am not enough.  You take my insecurities, my shame, my disappointments, my inadequacies, my sin and take them on.  You bear them and make them into my strengths.  I am enough in You.  You prove yourself to me time and time again.  You are the proof of everything I am.

“Come to me, all who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. 29 Take my yoke upon you, and learn from me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. 30 For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.” Matt. 11:28-30
