Rest for the Weary

” Come to me, all you who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest ‘

Matthew 11:28

Within this fast paced society of today, that is driven by greed and self righteousness, we do become very weary daily, how do you rest or re-charge your body? For some maybe load up on coffee for plenty of caffeine, maybe a mid day power nap? Or maybe even a weekend away? But these things are simply a temporary fix that passes quickly and the weariness returns, as the faith in Jesus Christ is what gives us the true rest deep within our souls, we just need to come to him, so we than can get the true rest our body needs.

With our daily routines comes frustration and chaos within the world around us as well, When we don’t get what we want, we become frustrated, when our jobs push us to our brink, we then become very weary which brings a whole host of chaos to our lives, when we become so tired from the stress, the chaos and the work from the push, we then will enter into burnout and if we do not handle the burnout correctly, we then will become bitter, have a wide variety of health problems, which then brings us much pain and hurt. Within the fast paced society we forget to truly heal ourselves in mind, body and soul, because we get so caught up in the chaos and our minds get lost within the clouds of our judgments, that we forget to take the time for ourselves, to regain the faith in ourselves and Jesus Christ. When we heal properly and when we get the proper rest we need, then not only can we walk freely of our paths on this journey of life, but we can also walk together with each other, without bringing hatred, chaos or ugliness to all that is around us.

We all will walk our own paths but the journey is the same, throughout this journey there will be many events that will tesgt us, there will be many who may cross our paths that will bring us much pain and hurt, as well as many that will come to us to help us when we need help the most, the problem then becomes we ourselves and when we do not be truthful to ourselves, how then can we be truthful with each other? The bigger picture of this is, not being truthful with ourselves, we then can never be truthful with Jesus Christ, which then becomes the number one reason why, we stop going within the house of God, to not just pray, but to hide deep within ourselves and not acknowledge of who we truly are. When we all come together in unity while being truthful of ourselves, with the faith of ourselves and Jesus Christ, then the love within our hearts will shine at it’s brightest, as all the hatred and ugliness disappears from all around us.

Rest is key for us all and not just resting from the work we put in from our jobs, but the rest that will help us heal from all our troubles, the rest that gives us spiritual healing deep within our soul. Getting out deep within Mother Nature and within her peace and serenity, will help us get the true rest we need, so we can heal within our mind, body and soul, from all that troubles us, so we than can move forward better and stronger. Some may want to vacation in an exotic place, with many others around and become stressed as they try to fit in everything in a short period of time, but thats not true rest, as it does nothing but add to the already tension within us. Step outside, step out deep within the woods of nature, listen to the peace and the sounds of nature, the birds singing their songs, the wind passing through the leaves of the tree, the water slapping against the shoreline, even a woodpecker pecking away at the tree. When you get out within Mother Nature and totally relax, you can feel the stress melt away from your body, kind of like a heavy weight being lifted off of your shoulders, spend a week out there and now you will recieve the proper healing within your mind, body and soul, plus you will also will trust yourself and while this takes place, learn to trust in Jesus Christ once again, as he led you to this special place, so you can truly heal as he wants you to. This is the biggest problem in this fast paced society, we don’t trust as we once did for whatever reason? We then hide deep within ourselves as we think we are protecting ourselves from any or further harm, but as the clouds then over come our judgments, we lose sight of who we truly are as we keep the foot on the gas and speed up further the pace throughout this journey, what do not realize is that while we bury deeper of who we truly are, our trust of each other gets buried as well. So as we move forward throughout this journey, we then hurt deeply each other and never show any love or empathy of each other. All this is on us the people of this society and all this can change if only we the people change our ways moving forward, as we walk our paths through this journey of life.

” Rest for the weary isn’t just falling asleep, it’s the healing of the mind, body and soul”

” The power of mother nature can change everything within it, just simply trust in her and the healing will begin”
