28 Then Jesus said, “Come to me, all of you who are weary and carry heavy burdens, and I will give you rest. 29 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. 30 For my yoke is easy to bear, and the burden I give you is light.” Matthew 11:28-30 NLT
Turn to Jesus! Not your best friend, mom, dad, or brother. Turn to Jesus! Only Jesus can truly help you and give you a deep rest. Our family and friends are gifts from God that are not meant to replace God. God designed us. He understands us better than we understand ourselves. Sit down and imagine Jesus sitting in front of you with His hands wide open waiting to take your burdens away from you. Tell Him about your problems. Give Him your burdens.
Jesus, personally, will give you rest. He will teach you His ways on how to be gentle and humble at heart, so that your soul can find rest. This world is all about striving. It is so tiring, but there is another way to live. Jesus' way.
Make the decision today to take His yoke which is light and easy to bear.
Dear Father, thank you for this day. Thank you for your love and faithfulness. Help us to turn to you and let go. In Jesus’ name. Amen.
