Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. 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. For my yoke is easy and my burden is light. Matthew 11:28-30 (NIV)
I’m feeling a little weary today. Sometimes life just becomes too much and our tender souls get overwhelmed. This is my go-to verse when I start getting down.
It’s so comforting to me to know that God provides rest for us and a respite. He will take our burdens on Himself and away from us. He is gentle and good and kind and loving. We don’t have to do this life on our own. We can’t. I honestly don’t know how people get through all the pain and suffering of this world without the love and presence of God in their lives.
The Bible does not promise us a life of ease and one without problems. It does promise us an eternal future and hope for the days we are here on this earth. Today I’m resting on these verses and giving my burdens to my Father.
Let go and Let God!
