Rest The Burden

Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.— Matthew 11:28 KJV

Right now, it may feel like no one knows how you feel but you. You may even feel like you need to rest more than you usually do. The burdens you are bearing might also feel heavy. You can feel its weight, its pressure, and over the time and distance you've traveled, it bears down on you. It might even get more complicated with the thought of another step. You have probably tried fixing the issue by adjusting the weight, and even a couple of times in protest, you've laid it down only to pick it up again. Initially, you thought fixing the issue by making adjustments to the weight was the right thing to do. But nothing could be more wrong. Maybe it is time to lay down the human planning and bring the burden to a person—it's time to "come to Jesus!"

DO THIS: Take a moment to give a burden to Christ today, and let him bear it. He's stronger than you.

PRAY THIS: God, the burden I have been bearing, I have labored under long enough. Take it from me and lighten my heavy load. Give me rest.


Short. Sweet. To the Point.
