“Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy and my burden is light.”
Are you looking for peace?
Are you searching to what seems to be no end?
Are you working just too hard?
Do you feel pressured by life?
Do you feel you hate getting up each morning knowing it will be another trying day?
In vain you rise early and stay up late, toiling for food to eat– for he grants sleep to those he loves.
Is your every thought surrounded by whether or not if you have enough hope?
Do you doubt your own faith and the faith of others?
Why is there no rest for you?
Because, you have not traded these things you’re hanging on to with what Jesus has for you.
He said; I have come to give you life and this life more abundantly.
He ask you to put your burdens in his hands and he will give you rest.
His rest is yoke destroying and burden removing.
Psalms 55:22 NASB
Cast your burden upon the LORD and He will sustain you; He will never allow the righteous to be shaken
Your old friends, I know its hard to give them up.
They have been with you so long,
You believe that you will not have anything to work towards or anyone to cry on your shoulders.
It’s not your job to do that.
You must love them
Feed them the Words
Give to them
It’s not your job to carry not just your own, but the burdens of others.
Point them to the one whose hands and shoulders can handle much more then you can.
Oh, your shoulders and hands will still be needed.
But, now you can use them to serve and assist the Father.
Through you He can help in aiding those that He could not reach without you or someone like you.
Once you have transferred your burdens to him,
You will start to fill every weight lifted from you.
The feeling will be strange at first but, believe me in saying, it’s well worth it.
Jesus hands can take every load that you have ever bared alone.
It will get easier and easier.
Things always get better when you put them in the right hands.
The LORD replied, “My Presence will go with you, and I will give you rest.”
