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. Matthew 11:29

When the weight of the world rests on our shoulders, we can be reminded Jesus wants to help carry the load. We each have our own burdens to bear. But, Jesus reminds us how to find rest for the soul. He humbles our hearts and nourishes hope when we faithfully trust and recognize Him as the Savior of our lives. 

Christ knows the heart of human weakness. He helps us understand we don’t have to handle life on our own. And, when we prayerfully submit to Him, He nurtures a relationship which allows us to understand how we are to honor God. 

Rest will come when we find the Father and allow Jesus to dwell in our hearts. We will never be able to find rest on our OWN. But, if we share our burdens with Christ, He will balance the load. He will help us remember; the yoke will be easier to bear if we don’t try to carry it alone. 

Dear God, Thank you for Jesus. We will seek Him with all of our hearts and find rest in the power of His love. As we surrender burdens in our lives, help us not forget; when we share the yoke of Jesus, we are professing our faith in You and gratefully welcoming peace to remember; we will NOT have to carry the weight of the world alone. Amen
