Come to Me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. {Matthew 11:28} For most of us, the Christmas season is the busiest time of the year. There are parties to attend, presents to buy, cards to send, and trips to take. There seems to be no such thing as a “silent night” in the world today!

Perhaps more than ever, this is when we need the rest Christ offers. He invites us to come to Him with our tired feet, busy schedules, and long to-do lists. When we do, He provides peace, restoration, and renewal. He also reminds us of what truly matters.

So take a few moments today to rest in the presence of the One who loves you most and has every detail of your life in His hands.

What are some ways you can find time to rest this Christmas season?
