weary, I come to you now

You, who said,
   “Come unto me all you who are weary and heavy-laden
   and I will give you rest,”
I come to you now.
For I am weary indeed.
Mentally and physically I am bone-tired.
I am all wound up, locked up tight with tension.
I am too tired to eat.  Too tired to think.
Too tired to even sleep.
I feel close to the point of exhaustion.

Lord, let your healing love flow through me.
I can feel it easing my tensions. Thank you.
I can feel my body relaxing. Thank you.
I can feel my mind begin to go calm and quiet and composed.

Thank you for unwinding me, Lord, for unblocking me.
I am no longer tight and frozen with tiredness,
   but flowing freely, softly, gently into your healing rest.

Marjorie Holmes, 1910—2002, American columnist and author

Come to me, all who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.  Take my yoke upon you, and learn from me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls.  For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.
