Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. – Matthew 11:29
Most of the time we’re looking for something. We are looking for peace, satisfaction, maybe even just a little rest. Often, we search for these things in food, relationships, buying things, watching TV, or any number of other activities. And while all these activities aren’t bad, they’ll never truly be what brings you rest and peace for your soul.
The only place you’ll truly find rest is by leaning on Jesus. When you begin to spend time in His presence and learn about Him, you’ll experience a peace you never knew before. Jesus offers a different kind of life. The world around you often searches for meaning and satisfaction in relationships. They hop from one relationship to the next, hoping to find peace. The peace people are searching for can only be found in knowing Jesus.
Knowing Jesus is the only way to find true peace in your life. Jesus is the only person who can truly satisfy you. He’s the only one that can fill the voids in your life and make you feel whole. He’s the only one that can bring your life meaning. As long as you pursue other things, you’ll never be happy. Choose today to run toward Jesus and begin finding the rest your soul longs for.
