Food for the Soul ~ Matthew 11:28-30

Hi Friends! Happy Sunday to you! I'm so happy to have you stop by for a quick visit. In this busy season of many time commitments, as well as navigating relationship waters, I am so blessed by the words of Jesus in Matthew 11:28-30. He says, "Come to me, all who are weary and heavy 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."


Friends, I confess to you that I often try to do things on my own, and I fall flat on my face. I take on these huge burdens (mostly worrying about things I cannot change) or multiple commitments to my time. Guess what? I end up frazzled and snippy with those who I am called to love and care for. How much simpler and sweeter would life be if I would just accept Jesus' offer and learn from Him? I have to remind myself daily to do just this... follow Him and His ways. Are you struggling under a heavy burden this week? I hope these words of Jesus will be of comfort to you.
