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 (Matthew 11:29, NLT).
We live in a world that is so used to being in constant frenetic motion. Our heads ache from all the noise. Our eyes burn from the persistent visual engagement. Our face is weighted by the pressure to impress and be better than the next person. Our legs and arms have all but given up from the increased stress of running here and there and yon.
While we long for rest and quietness on the inside, many of us don’t know where to begin with that, or even know if it’s possible for us to have. While the world turns at its own steady pace, we turn much faster at ours, rushing toward the weekend or a vacation that is all too soon over, and we are back right where we started.
