Matthew 11:28-30 - “Come to me, all who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you, and learn from me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.”
During your time on earth, Jesus, you were unbelievably close to the hurting, the sick, the broken, and the lowly. I am just like them. I was blind to who you are, and you opened my eyes. I was deaf to your voice, and you made me hear.
If the only qualifications for coming to you are that I am laboring and heavy laden, then here I am! Take my worries, anxieties, fears, brokenness, and burdens. Help me carry my daily burdens. Teach me to depend on you every day.
Thank you for offering us rest.
