Perhaps today you are feeling tired and worn out. You’ve juggled housework, office work, homeschool, kids, business, or just all that is happening around the world. Each day brings a load of demands in our lives. When we try to carry everything on our own, we become fatigued and stressed out.
In Matthew 11:29 (NLT), Jesus invites us to come to Him with all of our cares and concerns, “Come to me, all of you who are weary and carry heavy burdens, and I will give you rest. 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. For my yoke is easy to bear, and the burden I give you is light.”
What does this verse mean for you and me? It means that when we are feeling overwhelmed by the burdens of life, we can have the confidence that Jesus is ready and willing to take the burden off of us.
He is able and available to take the load off from you. Give your worries to God, and trust your life and your future into His hands!
