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 (NLT)

How are you doing? Are you struggling? Are you suffering? Are you tired and weary? Do you feel as though you have too much to bear? Are you doing too much, too often, for too many? Then turn to Jesus.

When we turn to Jesus, we find that He will take our burdens, He will carry us, and all we have to do is turn to Him, follow Him, and take on His direction and His directing in your life. Not our direction, but His; not our desires, but His; not our doing, but His. His will in our lives and for our lives.

Then, we will find rest for our soul.
