Matthew 11:28-30

"Come to me all 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.

We all have days where the stresses of life seem to overwhelm us. We can be disappointed, depressed or just plain angry. We can blame others, ourselves or even worse God. We often can feel at the bottom of the pit and not know where to go. But remember this verse! Matthew 11:28-30 says to come to Him. Jesus will give you rest. His yoke is easy and His burden is light! He wants us to lay our overwhelming struggles at His feet so we don't have to be burdened or weary. When this world tries to weigh you down remember that our Savior is gentle and humble and wants to give you His peace. What a great promise!

Reflection: Take a few minutes to meditate on this promise. Have you laid down your burdens today? Come to Him and you will find rest!
