When Hope Grows Thin

When hope grows thin
and that once-bright-light in your eyes
fades, begins to dim,
come to me.
When hope starts to go
and holes form and slowly
tear into your soul
come to me.
When breath rattles through tired lungs
and your heart has just had enough –
is tired of fighting,
has given up
come to me.

“Come to me, all who are weary..”

If you are weary, come, if you are scared, come, if you are confused come.

All you need to do is come.
That’s the only thing required of you. Maybe the only thing you can muster up within yourself to do.

So just come. That’s enough.

“and I will give you rest.”

Rest.

Rest from trying. From trying to be strong all on your own. From trying to be good enough. From trying to earn love. From the struggles and trials of life. From discouragement and lies.
I long to give you rest.

I long to whisper to you. I long to remind you that you have already arrived home in me. That you are my beloved. That you already belong.

I love you, my beloved.
-Jesus

——
The rest comes from coming to the One who IS rest.
All you need to do is come. Come to Jesus. Run to Jesus. Jesus promises rest.

“Those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength, they will soar on wings like eagles, they will walk and not grow weary, they will run and not grow faint.” Is. 40:31.
“Come to me, all who are weary and heavy burdened, and I will give you rest.” Matthew 11:28

My heart goes out to you.
Let him renew you.
