“Then Jesus said, 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.”

Matthew 11:28-29 (NASB)

I particularly like this scripture in the Message Bible: “Are you tired? Worn out? Burned out on religion? Come to me. Get away with me and you’ll recover your life. I’ll show you how to take a real rest. Walk with me and work with me—watch how I do it. Learn the unforced rhythms of grace. I won’t lay anything heavy or ill-fitting on you. Keep company with me and you’ll learn to live freely and lightly.”

Bring all your discouragements, your sorrows, your failures, and your broken dreams to the Lord. You don’t have to carry those things around like luggage any longer. Lay it all at the feet of Jesus. Let Him carry you and bring you through whatever is going on in your life. Come to Him for everything and take it to Him in prayer. Let the Lord heal you and bring you perfect peace and perfect joy.


 I declare You are my refuge and my strength my very help in the time of need.
