Currently, I'm in the middle of taking my father-in-law to the hospital for tests. At 86, soon to be 87, he's been extremely fortunate health wise all of his life. He still lives on his own and works two days a week, but the fact that he's facing some issues is still disconcerting, especially at his age.
We wove our way through the Baylor Hospital in Plano to get him to his tests ahead of schedule, and he had written down all the information they have provided him. He also had already filled out the information and paperwork and brought that along as well.
Made me think of Christ's message in Matthew 11, "Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest." Easier said than done because our society doesn't give you an opportunity to pause and reflect on that passage with all the paperwork and pre-test assignments you have to go through.
Yet we know Christ means just that. We are to take our concerns to him, our worries, our fears. Pray that we follow this simple yet powerful message from Christ to bring our burdens to him when we are weary.
