Are you tired and weary? This is more than just physical fatigue. There's mental and emotional fatigue. There is spiritual fatigue. It's more being being exhausted. It's living overloaded, over-committed and overworked, to the point where you can't see the way out. For many in our culture, this is the way of life--and it leaves us anxious, over-extended and hoping for a break where we can refill our tank for living. In this message, Pastor Merritt details a God Who created us with rest in mind, why rest is important, and how we can find real rest that will enable us to face the battles and trials of life with renewed strength and certainty.

"If you are looking for rest and peace and contentment and satisfaction I'll save you a lot of heartache and a lot of trouble and give you a shortcut by letting you know that you won't find it in pleasure, performance, position or possessions. You will only find it in a person—Jesus Christ. The only person who ever lived on this planet with perfect peace in His life from the time he was born to the time He died was Jesus Christ. The reason for that peace was He had put on the yoke of His heavenly father and surrendered His will to the Father's will." --Dr. Merritt
