Finding Rest in the Chaos of Work

“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 11:29-30

The demands of work can be relentless. Crazy deadlines, unforeseen complications, unexpected resignations, even good news like winning a new contract, all contribute to added work that can pull us in more directions than we can handle. Rest seems elusive at best and impossible at worst, particularly when it is hard to shut it all off even after the computer has been put to sleep and the lights are out.
