Ease The Burden

19 Jul

Jesus said:
“Come to me, all you who labor and are burdened,
and I will give you rest.
Take my yoke upon you and learn from me,
for I am meek and humble of heart;
and you will find rest for yourselves.
For my yoke is easy, and my burden light.”  (Mt 11:28-30)

Too often, we feel that we have to do things on our own.  When we do, we find ourselves bogged down, completely overwhelmed.  This happens in our daily lives.  It also happens in our spiritual lives.

The quick and easy answer to this overload?

Give our cares to the Lord.

Jesus was not just full of flowery speech.  He meant everything He ever said.  He was serious when He told us to give our cares to Him and let Him carry them for us.

Jesus is meek and humble of heart and cares for us incredibly.

FAITH ACTION:  Feeling overwhelmed this day?  Give your cares and concerns to the Lord and trust that He will help you.
