While many Grace College students headed down south for spring break, I spent my week at home up north in Michigan. After the first half of the semester and a stressful mid-terms week, spring break was exactly what I needed-restful! The week was filled with rest, relaxtion, and catching up with friends and family.
During spring break, I was reminded of how the Lord provides rest to those who are weary. After taking mid-term exams the week before spring break, I was definitely weary and the Lord provided me with rest. In Matthew the Lord promises to give rest to his followers, “Come to me all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest” -Matthew 11:28. Not only was I able to catch up on my sleep to meet my physical weariness, but the Lord also gave me mental rest. He provided me a week in which I did not have to think about the stresses of classes, working, and all the other worries in life.
Now, after a week of much needed rest, I am completely recharged and ready to finish out the semster strong-God is good!
