The first thing I thought of when I saw the word swamp was swamped, perhaps that is because of my level of busyness lately. Here’s my response.
IllustrationFriday.com Challenge: Swamp
If you’re in a place where you feel swamped, maybe it’s time to pull back a little. Remember what Jesus said to the weary and burdened?

He said, “Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy and my burden is light.”

He doesn’t want us running around overburdened and miserable. He wants us to live lives filled with joy and peace. He knows we all have our limits. It’s part of the reason the Lord instituted a Sabbath. Hey, God even rested at the end of creation. If he took a break what makes you think you don’t need one.

The world will keep turning if you take a break.

Take one… It’s good for the soul…
