I woke up one morning and reached out for my phone (as we all do first thing in the morning). The lights were switched off so I couldn’t see and had to use my hand to feel through the top of the side-table by my bed in the dark in search of my phone.
After searching through with my fingers for a while I couldn’t find my phone. I finally gave up and got up towards the light switch (which was on the other side of the room). As I progressed towards the switch, I tripped on one of my shoes, then stepped on a slightly sharp object, then tripped over something else. Finally, I got to the switch and turned on the light. I then realised when I looked around the room that my phone wasn’t even in the room. It was in another room.
Life is somethings like that in general. We stumble through life hoping for the best, sometimes we are tripped up with a relationship or disappointed by one thing or the other.
Life is tough!
However, Jesus says in Mathew 11:28, “Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest.” He also says in John 8:12 “Again Jesus spoke to them, saying, “I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will not walk in darkness but will have the light of life.” Let us find true rest in Jesus and guidance for our lives from Him as we celebrate the death and resurrection of Jesus this month.
Have a great month ahead.
