Balm for Heavy Hearts

“Rest is a precious ointment, balm for a heavy heart.” –Wayne Muller

Body aching from the
from the busyness of the week.
Tasks waiting—
at home,
in the yard,
in the sink,
the list goes on…

Pull out the precious ointment,
light the candles,
Sit. Be.
Hide away from the noise,
for a few moments,
Quiet. Rest.
Slow down, put on, receive,
balm for a heavy heart.

Take a few moments to pause and read the words of Jesus.
"Come to me, all of you who are weary and carry heavy burdens, and I will give you rest.  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 11:28-29 NLT
Linger with His words.

Receive His words.

Consider what you need to bring to him that he might give you rest this weekend.


Grace and peace be ours in abundance as we come to Jesus.  May we find that God receives all the things that we bring to Him and restores our souls.  In Him, may we find real rest.
