As I was reading Genesis 32: 22-28 I began pondering how we're not all that different from Jacob. We also wrestle with God. Struggling against His plan for us and trying to go our own way.
I've been there. I've tried to find my own path. Follow my own will. Fight my own fight. Battered and bruised.
Peace can be found when we stop wrestling and receive His blessings - finding rest in His grace.
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. ~ Matthew 11:28-30
