Come to me, all who are weary and heavy-laden, and I will give you rest. Matthew 11: 28 NIV

Jesus meets us where we stand in our lives. He patiently waits to prepare us to greet the Father. And while we are focused on the offering of His love, He asks us to sit for a while.

There’s much to learn while we sit with Jesus. The One who brought light to the darkness also lightens our loads. The Bible says, "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.”

In gloomy days of weakness, God helps us remember better days will come. He hears the prayers of the righteous. And, when we are able to clearly see the need for mercy and grace, He helps us recognize we are stronger than we think. 

Christ leads us to the Father. And, even when we don’t know what to pray, He knows the prayers of need. He fills the empty spaces of our hearts and reminds us who’s in charge of ALL things. In moments to share the power of strength, He helps us remember we must choose to trust. 

We can’t know what tomorrow will bring. But, we can have peace in knowing Christ is with us. He will guide and provide all the days of our lives and faithfully lead us to the Father. God has a plan for our days. If He leads us to it, He will lead us through it. He will help us find peace when we trust in Him and BELIEVE He WILL handle ALL things.

Dear God, Thank you for helping us remember Your strength is made perfect in weakness. Forgive us when we forget to trust in You. We will faithfully follow Jesus and open our hearts to Your will. And, we will be gratefully reminded how very much we are loved. Amen
