Thoughts on Today's Verse...

Where do you go when you are exhausted and in need of rest? No bed, vacation, or retreat can give us the genuinely refreshing, spiritual rest we desperately need apart from Jesus. He invites us to bring our weariness to him and rest in and with him.
So what are you waiting for? Come to Jesus and enjoy the blessings of his presence, love, forgiveness, grace, refreshment, and rest! Jesus invites us:
"Come with me by yourselves to a quiet place and get some rest" (Mark 6:31).

My Prayer...

Almighty God, your Son Jesus is my strength and hope. I look forward to the day when he returns in triumph for me and all of your children. But Father, I want to know him better and to live for him with an undivided heart. I want to find rest in his presence, meaning in his service, and significance in his acceptance. Please bless me as I journey toward a deeper relationship with you and gain a more profound knowledge of your Son. In the name of Jesus Christ, my Lord, I pray. Amen.
