28 Then Jesus said, “Come to me, all of you who are weary and carry heavy burdens, and I will give you rest. 29 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. 30 For my yoke is easy to bear, and the burden I give you is light.”
Over the last several months there have been many trials and heartbreaks enter the lives of many so dear to me. Friends that love Jesus and His people and work so hard to share that love with others. I have sat with them and talked and took in the look of weariness on their faces. I have longed for the words to make things better for them. Better for those who have children in difficult situations, for those who have lost a husband, a father, a grandfather and a mentor. But those words don’t seem to come. The truth is that the only One that can help us carry these burdens and relieve us of our weariness is Jesus!! Only He can provide the rest our souls so long for in difficult times. We can find comfort in these words in Matthew and the words of Isaiah 41:13 “For I hold you by your right hand—I, the Lord your God. And I say to you, ‘Don’t be afraid. I am here to help you”.
So today if you are weary and burdened take your troubles to the ONLY one that can provide you with true comfort and rest. Take them to JESUS!!!
