You have heard the term “Crazy Busy.” Let’s look at what we call “Crazy Rest.” Recently, we have blogged about being selfless as instructed in Philippians 2:1-4.
“If you’ve gotten anything at all out of following Christ, if his love has made any difference in your life, if being in a community of the Spirit means anything to you, if you have a heart, if you care —then do me a favor: Agree with each other, love each other, be deep-spirited friends. Don’t push your way to the front; don’t sweet-talk your way to the top. Put yourself aside, and help others get ahead. Don’t be obsessed with getting your own advantage. Forget yourselves long enough to lend a helping hand.” Philippians 2:1-4 MSG
Also, we have written about self-care. Everyone needs basic care of themselves physically and mentally. Sometimes it is just hard to balance yourself in life especially since Jesus told us to be selfless. Selflessness can lead to exhaustion. Today we want to look at “Crazy Rest.”
Jesus understood that burnout happens, and He also took time to teach us how to get rest. How to get past burnout and get “Crazy Rest” that only He can give. The scripture reads, “Then Jesus said, “Come to me, all of you who are weary and carry heavy burdens, and I will give you rest.” Matthew 11:28 NLT.
We do get mentally and physically burnt out, and at times we just seem tired in our souls. Jesus fully understands how life takes us to our limits. Which is why He instructs us, that whatever your situation may be, come to Him. In your own way tell Him all about it. He will forgive your sins and release your soul. Jesus will lead you to that perfect place of rest and comfort even in hard times. Yes, He said “Come to me…” He really did. So let’s do it! Let us go to Jesus and get some “Crazy Rest.”
