How do you feel today? Tired or maybe like you could use a rest? Maybe you’d like relief from your heavy burdens, debt, daily problems and workload you’re toting around.

Take just a minute and think about something in your life that you just need a break from. Is there something in your life applying lot of pressure on you and just plain wearing you out? Maybe you set a goal that was too aggressive, you’re distracted by unhealthy habits, under major financial pressure or just need a break from people!

How does it feel when you’re under that pressure, that burden? Do you wake up with a start, already stressed-out about all the things you have to take care of? Or you could be having trouble even falling asleep!

Right now, you and I are entering a time of refreshing, refocusing and unburdening! This is a season of forgiveness. Wait, what does forgiveness have to do with rest? In forgiveness, there is REST! Rest for your emotions, your mind, your spirit, your soul, your physical body. Your entire “you” will rest.

“Then Peter came and said to Him, ‘Lord, how often shall my brother sin against me and I forgive him? Up to seven times?’ Jesus said to him, ‘I do not say to you, up to seven times, but up to seventy times seven.’” (Matthew 18:21-22)

When you don’t forgive other of  these “debts” – financial, emotional, mental, spiritual, verbal – then there are consequences. “But if you do not forgive others, then your Father will not forgive your transgressions.” (Matthew 6:15)

If you hold on to unforgiveness, you will not be granted a rest from your financial burdens, your sins or whatever else is weighing you down.  And on top of that, you have to carry around this extra trash that really belongs to another person. You don’t need that in your life. It is not helping to improve your life, your career, your relationships or your finances.
