A Face Lift

Recently, I've happened upon people around town,who I haven't seen in quite awhile. It is amazing the marked difference in their countenance. Some have had the drip, drip, drip, of life's irritations and troubles snuff out their sparkle and light. Other's who had previously seemed tired and washed out, still have a very "full plate" but now, seem rejuvenated.

All of us have things to deal with. Some days are easier than others.

There are those days, when we feel overwhelmed.

There are days when we want to change our name.

Truth be told, sometimes there are days when we want to join the witness protection program and leave town...alone.
But we don't have to go that far.....

Jesus came for these days.

He said: "Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest". Matthew 11:28

As it turns out, the difference in my friend's countenances, was in correlation with how much of the load they were trying to carry by themself, and how much of the load they had turned over to Him.

Go to Jesus......take a load off.....sit a spell....and rest.
