Today’s Scripture Sunday involves one of my all time favorite Bible verses, Matthew 11:28.
I am now wrapping up week three of the Bible study “A Woman Who Doesn’t Quit” by Nikki Koziarz. This Bible study, if you’re unfamiliar with it, is based on the book of Ruth. Nikki teaches us how to be women of perseverance using five points from the life of Ruth.
In week three, Nikki talks about how a woman who doesn’t quit follows through with a task even when she doesn’t feel like it. Funnily enough, I wrote Wednesday’s post about struggling with perfection before I read my Bible study this week. I was pleasantly surprised by how related the two are. Isn’t God funny?
We women are expected to do it all and have it all together. No one does. No one can. Society and social media today leave us in a constant state of Comparison. When we feel we can’t compete, we quit. Nikki says this: “when we give God our soul’s best, he gives us a spirit of rest.”
Don’t quit. Give it to God instead.
What in your life is making you weary or heavy laden? Give it to God and he will give you rest.
