"Heavy-Laden" or "Joy-Laden"?

          Have you had your Joy Juice today? Too tired?  That’s exactly why you need to have a serving!

            Do you ever find yourself really having a hard time concentrating and remembering things, simply because you are weary?  There are oodles of things that demand our time.  Many of you have young families and that, in itself, is a major responsibility.  If we have jobs outside the home, we should give our best efforts to our employer.  There are church activities and civic organizations…and so many other “good things”.

            Though our reasons are different, every one of us experiences weariness from time to time. Busy parents, you may find yourself wondering if you will EVER get another good night’s sleep!  Let me assure you that those times do come…But it seems that we always find something to fill our days with “busyness”.  If we’re not careful, we’ll find ourselves running in circles….staying busy but really not accomplishing much!  We should seek God’s wisdom in determining His will and purpose for each day.  Sometimes He may simply want us to “rest” and get renewed in Him.

            In Matthew 11: 28, Jesus tells us to “Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.” 
            If you find yourself weary and “heavy laden”, do as Jesus says and “Come to Him.”  He is waiting with arms open wide, to renew your spirit and fill you with His strength and JOY.
