Genuine Rest in Your Life Journey: Take a moment to look at ourselves standing on the photo, the Way of Jesus.  As we stand at the start line of the way, everything right before us seems wide and easy, but soon after the start line, things go narrow and tough.

The finish line seems far away even beyond where we can reach getting weary.  One may say, "Get strong; don't show tears; fasten tight; don't let anyone see that you are weak.  While you deny, your soul gets weary, your mind loses focus, and your strength wears down.

Each of us has pain, concerns, hope, and need in various life settings.  Some are frustrated by their life situation more than others.  Some are going through ups and downs at different times.  One thing that is common to us is that each of us needs genuine rest from hastiness and demand of life.

Rest in a state park

Do you find yourself sitting on a hill watching down in the nature?  Jesus says, "Come to me, all you that are weary and are carrying heavy burdens, 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 )  Where do you find such a place for rest?  People are tempted and tend to be driven by their restlessness striving to maintain many broken relationships and pressing demands.

Jesus offers you genuine rest free and secure, but it is not free in the way you think.  The only thing he asks is to take his yoke upon you: learn his way of life.  He gives you instructions and will walk with you.  You no longer struggle with your life alone at times of restlessness, discouragement, and crisis because Jesus walks with you!
