The past few weeks have been extremely busy.  The kind of weeks where you're moving so fast from one task to the next that the most important things get neglected for the ones that are the most demanding.

Life is demanding. It always will be.

Consider this... Jesus was a busy man. He was constantly moving. He was always serving. He was being pulled by the demands of the world daily.

But, no matter how demanding life became... He was faithful to keep the most important thing first. Time with His Father.

"Come with Me by yourselves to a quiet place and get some rest." Mark 6:31

The amazing thing about spending time with Him and resting in His presence is...

He is faithful. To give us rest. To carry our burdens. To refresh our souls.

So today... I am going to lay my weary head on my Savior's knee and spend time with Him. And rest. 

I hope that you will lay aside every demand at some point today and find peace and be refreshed as you rest in Him. 

"Come to Me, all you who labor and are heavy-laden and overburdened, and I will cause you to rest. [I will ease and relieve and refresh your souls.] Matthew 11:28 Amplified Bible
