Rest   

  

Welcome to Bette’s Box of Blessings! And welcome to what the marketers tell us is “the most wonderful time of the year!” With all the hustle and bustle of the season, it sometimes feels like we can’t even slow down enough to catch our breath. My prayer is that this Box of Blessings will allow you to slow down, catch your breath…and rest.


Our theme verse for this month’s Box of Blessings comes from Matthew 11:28:


Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest.


I couldn’t think of a better verse for this time of year! What with trying to make sure we have the perfect gifts for all our loved ones, getting all our decorations up (and down), and oh yeah, preparing for a new year…it’s no wonder that we all feel weary and burdened at this time of year!


But here’s the great news: Jesus said, “I will give you rest.” He went on to say, “Take up my yoke and learn from me, because I am lowly and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls.” (Matthew 11:29) If we focus on imitating Jesus by putting others ahead of ourselves and humbling our hearts, our souls will find rest.


This month’s Box of Blessings is all about Rest. Rest when we are weary and burdened. Rest when life is hard, and we start doubting. Rest when our heart is uncertain.
