Come unto me, all you that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly of heart: and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.
Are you feeling overwhelmed, pulled in every direction, stressed out? Does everything around you seem to be piling up and is more than you can bear? Jesus tells us that we just need to come to Him and He will give us rest. In the time of Jesus, a yoke was a wooden beam used between a pair of oxen or other animals to enable them to pull together on a load. Jesus tells us that He wants to partner with us and have us learn about Him. As we accept His partnership, He will stand beside us and pull together with us making our burden light. Trust in Him today… allow Him to give you comfort and rest.
