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
Sometimes the weight of the world rests on our shoulders and we need to be reminded Jesus carries our burdens. When there is a load to bear, He helps us find rest for the soul. He humbles our hearts and nourishes HOPE when we faithfully allow ourselves to be led.
Christ knows the heart of our weakness. He helps us recognize we're not alone. He reminds us He is here. He draws us close to the Father and provides strength to handle our days. And when we faithfully believe, He nurtures a relationship of trust.
Rest will come if we allow Jesus to dwell in our hearts. If we share our burdens with Him, He will balance the load. He will show how to deal step over obstacles and He will carry us through. We will never have to walk alone.
Dear God, Thank you for Jesus. We will seek Him with all of our hearts and find strength in Your amazing grace. As we surrender the burdens in our lives, teach us to trust in You, so we will gratefully be reminded who handles each and every day. Amen
