31 Days: “Woman, Just Believe Me” ~ “ RSVP ” {Day 21}

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.
Matthew 11:28

H

ow often do we not RSVP or get frustrated when we send an invitation with an RSVP that gets no response. With our daughter’s wedding in a week, we are there!  We are trying to keep count, especially for a dinner reception, and knowing how much food and how much to set-up for seating.

Isn’t the above verse like an invitation we so often shove under God’s other promises and His stack of invitations?  At some point we take out His letter and remember, and respond and accept.  In this case He is inviting those that are overwhelmed, weary, and burdened down.  He wants to give rest and He be the escape we yearn for.  He wants to teach us in a gentle, tenderhearted way, so that we can breath in deeply and rest without despair or anxious thoughts.  

It’s an invitation to RSVP with no reply by date.  He’s waiting.  We can respond now.  But He will be there tomorrow too.

Might the Father be saying to you,  

I see the weariness.
I know you need rest.


RSVP now!

Woman,
just believe Me.

reworded and reworked a bit from a past blog post to give me a blog rest today
