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 Matthew 11:29
In all the hurry towards Christmas, it is too easy to forget to rest for a moment at the manger. God came and rested here upon the earth as the humble child of Mary. He entered in the unhurried nine months in the waiting room of her womb. He didn’t burst forth with proclamations of greatness flowing from his own lips, but in a meek quietness. Shepherds were the first to know as they rested with their flocks. The same God who has awakened us to the glory has also gently invited us to rest our souls in Him alone!
