“Then Jesus said to me, “Come to me, all of you who are weary and carry heavy burdens, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you. Let me teach you, because I am humble and gentle at heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy to bear, and the burden I give you is light.”
~ Matthew 11:28-30
Easter is coming up and you can definitely tell. Stores are putting out Easter baskets,
schools and churches are coming up with Easter egg hunts/activities, people are shopping for their Easter outfits, and families are coming up with menus for their Easter dinner. It’s so much that we do for the holidays, especially Christmas, Easter, Thanksgiving, and I can go on and on.
But do we really know the true meaning behind them? Easter is the specific day we set aside to celebrate the resurrection of Jesus. Jesus was sent to die for all of our sins and on the third day he rose. He carried our burdens to the cross and was restored into recovery (rest or a normal state of health, mind, and strength). And just like Jesus, some of us are being restored into recovery as well.
Lately, I have been working so hard to make sure I achieve my dreams and goals, with
my number one priority being finally graduating from college. I would have been graduating this May but that won’t be the case. I’ll be graduating next year in May. I have put in work so my graduation will manifest and I’ll achieve one of my many dreams. Another dream is beginning my brand/career. It has been hard during this process. I have doubted myself and everything I dreamed of ever achieving when it came down to my business and brand. And I am sure that’s how the people closest to Jesus felt during his time of restoration and recovery. They didn’t believe Jesus would rise up or manifest. Like the scripture says, “All of you who are weary and carry heavy burdens, I will give you rest.” For whatever you’re going through He will give you rest!
Our dreams may not manifest in the time we want them to. It may take days, months, or
even years. God’s timing is the perfect timing. So, if you’re believing your dreams have died because you don’t see the manifestation, or even if you’re just going through a difficult time in life right now, give it to God and in return he’ll restore you and give you REST! Don’t let your discouragement, disappointment, and sadness consume you. Be still and know that God is God.
The manifestation will come if it is in God’s will. As I am writing this, I am encouraging myself to keep the faith and find rest in God. You should too!
I love you and praying for and with you that God gives you rest and that you keep the faith.
“Trust in the LORD with all your heart; do not depend on your own understanding.”
