Resting in His Presence
John Ogden Sr.

“Come to Me, all you who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest” (Matthew 11:28, NKJV).
To rest means that you are in a state of inactivity, free from activity or labor. There are so many times in our lives that we allow busyness to creep in and take control. Unbeknownst to us, burdens pile on our back and before long we are weary and irritable from bearing such a heavy load. We do not realize the necessity of just stopping and allowing ourselves to rest in God’s presence. In fact, that is usually one of the first things to be cut out of a busy life.
The definition of busy (according to Merriam-Webster) is “engaged in action, occupied, being in use.”
