There is so much in my mind. All sorts of thoughts, ideas, concerns, “to-do lists,” schedule, Bible study prep, family dynamics and much more. And my mind just isn’t keeping up. It’s a bit weary from this past weekend of travel and parties. It’s a bit weary from lack of sleep. It’s a bit weary from these crazy allergies and medication. And as much as I’d like to just relax and allow my mind to recoup, there just isn’t time.


My mind is on overload and these are the exact moments when I need to lean more heavily onto Jesus. You see Satan knows where I am this morning. So his goal is to get me to make poor decisions because my mind is weary. His goal is to tempt me with things I shouldn’t even consider. His goal is to point me in a direction that isn’t good for me. And he knows that this is the exact moment when I am weakest and he will take advantage of that fact.


But I’ve caught on to the enemy’s tactics. I know what he’s trying to do. And I also know that he isn’t going to win this one.


On Sunday morning, I had the opportunity to go to church with my Dad and listen to him preach. It was a pretty awesome morning. The first song we sang in worship is one of my favorite songs. We use it in Praise in Motion and we call it the lasso song because that’s one of the moves. But as I stood there and sang the words to this song, I had a deeper love for this song. Not because I was going through the motions (as I sometimes do when we sing a Praise in Motion song in worship), but because I caught the meaning of the song.


The song is “Greater” and I’ve shared it with you before (you can click here to see my thoughts), but what I want to share this morning is that this song begins with an invitation to those who are tired. Bring it. Bring it to the One who is greater than your tiredness. There is no reason to carry this burden of weariness all by yourself.


Jesus knew we would be tired and that Satan would use our weariness against us. That is why He invited us to bring our load to Him. “Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. 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. For my yoke is easy and my burden is light.” (Matthew 11:28-30 – NIV)


Are you ready to give your weariness to Jesus? If so, you can lasso that tiredness and dump it at the feet of Jesus. That is where you will find rest. Sweet rest.


I have a busy day ahead, but I know that Jesus is right beside me to give me the strength and mind I need to get through it. Because greater is the One living inside of me than the one living in this world.


Grace and peace be yours in abundance,
