"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. For my yoke is easy to bear, and the burden I give you is light." (Matthew 11:28-30)
Weariness is a good description of where most people are after the last year and a half. We are used to staying home, keeping our distance from each other, work seems more of a chore, and even church attendance suffers because of the ease of watching church online.
Jesus calls us to hide in Him. He is the One who can give us rest and renewal in our lives. We find that rest by deciding to listen to and follow the Lord.
At times it sure doesn't seem like His yoke is easy or the burden light. The Holy Spirit helps carry our burdens. We are not alone! Let's get out of our funk and enjoy walking with Jesus!
