We are all on the journey of life. These are my thoughts along my journey...with God, in my faith, with my family, and my friends.

There Is Rest for the Weary
"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.” Matthew 11:28-30 Key words we see:
- Come..to Jesus - Who? "All who labor and are heavy laden." We all feel that way at times, don't we? Yet Jesus calls every one of us to Himself.
- Take...His yoke upon you - A yoke? Sounds like a burden. But a yoke helps a team of horses or oxen pull together. Picture Jesus coming alongside and helping bear the burden.
- Learn...from Him - We all want to learn from the best in our particular field of interest. This is our invitation to learn from the VERY best!
- Find...rest for your soul - A place of refuge from the clamor of the world. A place of protection where we can be held close to His heart.
Just a few thoughts:
Stop worrying about the encumberances of life. Find rest in Him.
