WOYWW: Finding Rest!

 Yesterday I had things to do and places to go,and I did not finish my painting. I had to leave it on my desk.

 I finished it this morning. And here's another painting I finished:

"Come to me, all you who are weary and find life burdensome, and I will refresh you. Take my yoke upon your shoulders and learn from me...Your souls will find rest." 
Matthew 11:28-29
Usually what we remember about this well loved verse is that Jesus will refresh us, and our souls will find rest. We usually disregard what Jesus said about learning from Him which is a prerequisite to finding rest. Rest of course does not mean sleep or having time off. What Jesus promises is a season of refreshment, fulfillment, restoration. It is very clear that to be in this enviable state, we need to learn some life skills from Jesus. Humility, generosity, putting God and what He loves first, prayer, and first and foremost that Jesus is Master and Lord. How else can He become our teacher?
When we observe people, we will see that when we need help, when we are burdened, very often we run to other people and other places, rather than come to Jesus who is waiting. We may even run to Church or religion. But going to Church is not the same as making Jesus our teacher, brother and friend. We need to read His Words, His teachings for ourselves. Lord, teach me to enter into Your rest!
