Take a Break By Brenda Drake

When stress level is high, we need to bow low.  When we are beaten down we need to lift up our face to Jesus, the One that listens and answers prayer and promises in the Holy Word to give us strength as He relieves us of our heavy burdens.

Take a Break

Take a break from worry and its stressful ways.
Instead get to work at the sacrifice of praise.
In your holy toil you will find,
A lovely place of rest with peace of mind.
When you lay down your troubling thoughts and concerns,
And think again of the Lords watch-care and His soon return.
Your heart is able to compose a love song new;
Warm and gentle flowing through.
The world is pushing hard upon the unsuspecting soul,
With more and more drama, and fear of the unknown.
Rest in the knowledge God hears and answers prayer.
Rest in the knowledge of all He is aware.
Rest in the sure knowledge His love never ends.
And that there is nothing you need to do to more please Him.
Take a break, and bask in the Son;
His strength will give new power to you when you are done.
Come and rejoice because you are mine.
Let us meet together yet again in your resting time.

Matthew 11:28-30
Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls. For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.
