"Find Rest in the Lord"
It’s September! And, Labor Day in the United States is upon us. It is a day known for taking a break from work. For most Americans, it means family BBQs, swimming, beach/lake fun, shopping, or camping. Labor Day traditionally marks the end of summer. It also typically means back to school and back to football season. Woo Hoo! War Eagle and Roll Tide from my house-hold divided!! Ha-Ha!
“Come to me, all who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.” Matthew 11:28
Before we know it, Christmas will be here and 2016 will be history. How has your year measured up so far? How has your “work” for the Lord come along??
Now is as good of time as any to examine how each one of us is doing. Think about it…Are we listening to God by reading His word? Are we shared the gospel message? How are the things we do and the choices we make reflecting God’s glory and bringing Him honor?
I encourage you as you move forward during these last few months of this year to find some time to simply rest in the comfort of God’s word. And, remember to put God first in all that you say and all that you do.
Happy Labor Day & Many Blessings!
