is a comma needed?

Jesus said...
"Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest." Matthew 11:28

Just what is a comma?  According to the dictionary, it is a break; a punctuation mark that represents a slight pause.  According to the Word, it is a break in life; a pause in an ever turning and hectic world filled with obligations, schedules and activities; a time of rest.  With Book Fair in full swing at school, i don't have time to pause, but if i don't, i will not make it to the end of the week.  A moment of rest with Him can provide the fuel needed to keep going, especially during hard times. 

Are you running full speed ahead?  Do you need a comma in your life now?  Be aware, sometimes God interjects a comma in our life to slow us down and to refocus and rest in Him.  I think you will agree a break is better than a breakdown.  And one more interesting observation.  Have you noticed when you use commas in sentences, the sentences extend for a greater length before you reach the end?  Do you think that can be true regarding life too?  Listen, Jesus calls us to Him to get needed REST... period.

have a rest-filled day!
