Jesus says, “I have a seat saved especially for you. Just plop yourself down and have a chat with me.”
In the midst of our busyness Jesus sits and He waits. He observes our hectic schedule watching us rush here and there, while we’re gasping for breath. He knows what we need and He offers us rest. If only we’d look up long enough to catch sight of Him, we’d notice Him beckoning us to come and unwind in the chair by His side. The chair Jesus offers is so much more than a place to sit, it’s a place to lay our burdens down and give our spirits a lift. It’s a place of refreshment for our weary bodies and thirsty souls. It’s a place of intimate connection with our Savior. As we go through our busy day, let’s look up now and then so we don’t miss Jesus’ invitation, and miss out on time with our Friend.
Matthew 11:28, “Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest.”
