Day 24: 'Twas the Night Before


'Twas the night before~

the day

that would change the world

that would change

the hearts

of all

who came

to experience the new born Son.

But

He was not just an ordinary Son~

He was

The One & Only One.

'Twas the night before~

the big break through

when

Love

broke through

the darkness

the hopelessness

the sorrow & grief

in

God's perfect timing.

'Twas the night before~

when the labor pains began

and then

The Baby Jesus

was born

so that we can come to

Him

in our labor.

Come to Me, all you who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take My yoke upon you and learn from Me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart,

and you will find rest for your souls.

For My yoke is easy and My burden is light.

Matthew 11:28-30

And

He will

give us the greatest gift in the midst of our labor~

His gift of Rest.

This promise of Jesus, wrapped up in the Gift of Christmas~

The Baby~

His gift of Rest…

“Jesus described His gift to His followers as rest for your soul.

This unmatchable gift ~both powerful and profound ~should be considered the birthright of those

who come to Jesus and are His followers.” (Guzik)

His gift of Rest ...

For all

who labor

and

He means

All of us~

as we all grow weary and tired.

Do you need rest?

Where are you laboring?

What do you hope this labor will produce?

Will you allow Jesus to labor for you?

Come to Jesus

to be swaddled in

His Gift of Rest

and experience

the

biggest breakthrough of

Love

that

will turn your

labor days

into a

Birth Day!
