Blog - Talking with Jesus
Are you tired and run down? Do you get overwhelmed at home, at school or work? I do.
God doesn't want us to be stressed. He loves us so much He wants to relieve us of the things that so easily entangle our lives. Jesus has wonderful words for tired people.
Come to me, all of you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. All of you, take up My yoke and learn from Me, because I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for yourselves. For My yoke is easy and My burden is light.
A yoke is a wooden frame to harness oxen together, so when they work, they work together. Jesus says if we bind ourselves to Him, He is gentle and humble. He lightens our load so our burden is light.
Think About It
I used to think that following Jesus would be burdensome, but it is not. When I bind myself to Him and trust Him to lead me in His ways, I hardly feel any burden at all.
Pray About It
Lord Jesus, thank you for being a wonderful friend. Thank you for sharing the biggest part of our load and giving us rest when we need it. Amen.
