Jesus words to us are an invitation. And invitation to come to Him when we need rest and peace from the burdens that we carry. Likewise, in our first reading we hear the God is the "Great I AM" and wants to lead His people to a place that is flowing with milk and honey- a place of abundant life. I am remembering a line from John's Gospel: "I come that they might have life and have it abundantly"(Jn 10:10).
For our prayer today, what most robs us of peace and rest? What's the heaviest burden we carry? A doubt, fear, anxiety, a sin? Whatever it is, God reminds us today that He wants us to come to Him with those things and allow Him to heal them.
So, today we surrender our heaviest burdens to Him and ask Him to replace them peace and rest. May He restore our tired minds, hearts and bodies. May He lead us to that place where there is only Life- and Life to the full. Our home- Heaven!
