St Bride's: Soul Thoughts

December 20

"You will find rest for your souls." (Matthew 11: 29)

During these hectic days before Christmas we rush around trying to fit everything in and make our preparations for the festival. We run the risk of becoming stressed and weary before the celebrations have even begun. Jesus offers us spiritual refreshment and a sense of inner peace, a space in which to reflect on our lives and gain a better perspective. We need that place of rest for our souls so that we can celebrate well.

Lord God, help us to see that you are the rest we seek for our souls in the midst of our busy lives, that we may turn to you for refreshment and peace. Amen.
