Come to me 2


they are not always easy to make

have you ever felt like you were standing at a crossroads

a big decision weighs heavy on the mind

and keeps sleep at bay

one that will affect your future

and determine which path you will take


God says in Jeremiah 6:16

‘Stand at the crossroads and look; ask for ancient paths, ask where the good way is, and walk in it, and you will find rest for your souls.’ 

what wonderful counsel this is!

‘ask for ancient paths’

turn to Him like our ancestors did

like Moses and Abraham did

as i thumb through the pages of Jeremiah and the old testament,

i’m struck by how long ago those words were written

yet how viable God’s promises still are today


so turn to our faithful God

ask Him which path to take, then walk in it

and the blessing?

you will find rest

not just a good night’s sleep

but a deep-peace-within-the-soul kind of rest


it reminds me of this invitation that Jesus gives us

‘Come to me, all of you who are weary and carry heavy burdens, and I will give you rest’ Matthew 11:28


stop trying to do it alone

give Him the weight of that decision

turn to him for counsel

then trust that he will show you the way

rest in him

find peace there
