I am sure glad Jesus said this:
Come to Me, all you who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. 29. Take My yoke upon you and learn from Me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. 30. For My yoke is easy and My burden is light. ~Matthew 11:28:30
Do you ever come to points in life that you just feel overwhelmed? I am so glad that our God is who He is, I just love the language of “gentle” and “lowly in heart.” And then of course, finding “rest for your souls;” these are things that everyone wants—a loving God who cares unconditionally for them—and finding rest for the soul. In fact wouldn’t you agree that rest for the soul is exactly the opposite from what the world has to offer? Instead the world offers us, restlessness. Does the world ever stop? I feel bad for people who cannot ever truly “rest!” I am so thankful that I know Jesus, I think I am going to go and rest . . . 😉 .
