My One Word: Rest
I don’t think I chose my word as much as it was chosen for me. As Christians, we say that everything depends upon God, but yet we often live like everything depends on us. Jesus promises us rest when we trust and rely on Him. I need to take Him up on His promise this year.
“Come to me, all who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you, and learn from me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.”
Matthew 11:28-30 (ESV)
