Then Jesus said, “Come to me, all of you who are weary and carry heavy burdens, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you. Let me teach you, because I am humble and gentle at heart, and you will find rest for your souls.
Matthew 11:28-29 (KJV)
Jesus invites us to come to Him: the weary, discouraged and confounded with the daily challenges and the heavy laden, bogged down with troubles from the past that seem to be effecting your present and future. He promises to give you rest in the times when life tends to challenge you with situations we can not control. The rest is for our minds and bodies to recover from the hurt and heartache associated with the weariness, and burdens you carry. Where our ‘yoke’ carries; self-advancement, self-preservation and pleasing of those around us, Christ’s ‘yoke’ carries His love and the building of faith.
Take some time to rest, reflect and then LET GO. Allow Christ to carry your burdens, He will give you rest if you allow Him to give you knowledge of His Love and Mercy.
Allow others to help you; God uses His children to comfort, support and personalize His Love for you. Find the rest for your soul and turn it over to Jesus.
Be Strong in the Lord, Grow in Faith.
