Item description for "Come to Me" by Mark Beaird...

Weariness can wear away at our souls, our dreams, our hopes, our determination, and our joy. Weariness is a thief that steals life. It is a descending staircase that leads us into the deep pit of despair and threatens to leave us there with no way out. But the good news is that the way of Christ is ascending. It is the stairway that leads us out of human despair and into the joy of knowing and serving God. Come to Me: An Invitation for the Weary Soul comes to us from the heart of someone who has seen and experienced the dark shadows of true weariness of the soul and mind. In these pages, the author shares with us God.s solution to human weariness and explains why this invitation from Jesus Christ for us to "come" to Him is an invitation worth considering. Reviewed by: Marie DisBrow for Wordsmith Shoppe "Come to Me, written in an easy-to-read, conversational style, is a devotional aimed at those who are overcome by weariness. In this hectic and stressful world, there is surely a large audience for this book. The author uses experiences in his own life, and those of others, to show how weariness can overcome us. A prayer and Scripture reading conclude each of the fourteen chapters." "The theme of the book is Jesus' invitation to the weary in Matthew 11:28-30: "Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy and my burden is light." I especially appreciated the author's explanation of a yoke and how taking Jesus' yoke upon us is not burdensome because it is "custom made" for each individual." "Beaird encourages setting priorities: God first, then family and other relationships, and even ourselves. He reminds us that Jesus took time to be alone for prayer and refreshing." "As a caregiver, I've often found myself weary and depressed. Reading Come to Me lifted my spirits and pointed to Jesus as the only true solution to the problem of weariness. This little book was very helpful to me, and I'll read it again and again." "Mark Beaird is a pastor, columnist, freelance writer, and the author of Let Me Encourage You Today: Daily Devotions and The Pastor's Collection Sermon Series. Mark and his wife and two daughters reside in Huntsville, Alabama, where he serves as the associate pastor at Life Church International."

Reviews - What do customers think about "Come to Me"?

Find rest in the arms of God  Feb 15, 2004
This book absolutely stunned me. I started reading just a few pages in it and couldn't stop until it was over. If you know someone who is going through problems or seriously considers giving up on life, this is the book they should read. If you are a counselor or pastor and must speak to hurting people, this is the book you should read. If you've ever found yourself at the end of your rope just wanting a few minutes of peace from the hectic, stressful everyday routine of life, this is for you. Pastor Mark is truthful and realistic in the stories he tells and the examples he uses both from his own life and the lives of others. This is truly a hard feat to accomplish properly, as there is a fine line between encouraging someone with your story, and turning it into a pity-party. Pastor Mark definitely succeeds in the former. Even though the struggles he mentions are hard, he's always pointing to the God who makes it possible to live through them. This book is harsh reality with hope. I still find myself thinking about points made often. I can't recommend it highly enough. You need this one.
