Our Week in the Word segment this week comes from me, Fiona Tollefson, editor of the College and Singles blog.

 

For many of us, everything opening back up after COVID has left us amazed at how busy our schedules now are. With all the avenues in our lives that demand our attention, we lose focus of what is important and in turn grow overwhelmed and tired.

I know that during my semesters in college I am tempted to prioritize school above all else and in turn grow tired. During my breaks from school, I prioritize working and in turn grow tired. Some of us are tired right now simply because it is the middle of a long week.

A Bible verse that I have clung to for many years now in the midst of simply feeling overwhelmed, tired, and distant from the Lord due to my askew prioritization is Matthew 11:28. This verse has brought peace and comfort to my soul. Jesus says, “Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest.”

How wonderful is it that our Savior not only cares for our weary and burdened state, He calls us to draw near to Him! He not only promises to give us rest-He is our rest! When I get tired and overwhelmed with the demands of my life/schedule, I lull myself into the sinful delusion that I simply need to power through my schedule, and then I will have time to be in the Word. Or, once I get out of this busy season then I can prioritize my quiet time with the Lord.

Friends, the Lord is calling us in our weary and burdened state to draw near to him! Some advice I’ve gotten many times in my life is that if you “Don’t have time for God now, you never will.”

I encourage you to draw near to our Savior who waits with open arms to give rest to our tired state. Prioritize our King. Why keep going in tired circles by yourself when Jesus calls us to come to Him? He is all we need and the only One who can give us rest.

Even if this is simply a busy season or a busy week for you, finish out the rest of this week faithfully by leaning into Jesus and drawing near to Him! I encourage you to pray this verse over yourself and even over your friends or family who feel burnt out and tired.
