The Global "Tiredness" Pandemic 

by Berni Dymet

Matt. 11:28-30 "Come to me, all you that are weary and are carrying heavy burdens, 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."

You know - the more that I look around, the more I see people who are chronically tired and exhausted. One of the most common answers I get to the question - "So, how are you going?" - is "Well, things are so incredibly busy."

And so our health and wellbeing suffer, our relationships suffer - we suffer, our family suffers - all because we're tired. 

It's easy to imagine somehow that this is something new. But tiredness - that deep, exhausting kind of tiredness - is nothing new.  Back in the 1st century, Jesus said to people …

Come to me all you that are weary and are carrying heavy burdens and I will give you … rest.

These weren't people living in hectic, post-industrial always connected to technology age. These were people living in the agrarian age; subsistence farmers most of them.

Doesn't matter who we are, or where we come from - we all need rest. Deep rest: the sort of rest that Jesus was talking about.
