Back to Matthew 11:29: “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.” Jesus is our teacher, our example of attitude and emotional stability; and in Him you find rest for the soul. It seems that when you are on a diet, the decision-making process looms larger than normal. Every decision seems magnified. What do I eat now? There is rest for the will as well as the emotions. Rest is cessation from work. When dieting seems like work, then there is rest in Jesus. Rest your emotions and your wills. How you might ask? When you can’t do it, Jesus can. Just rest in knowing He has it under control. He isn’t flustered or depressed. Just take your thoughts off of food and on to the promises of the Word.
