Word of Encouragement

“Come unto me, all you that labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and you shall find rest unto your souls. For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.” – Matthew 11:28-30

In times of trials and obstacles, we are to cast our cares upon the Lord and seek Him diligently. It is so easy to take our burdens and carry it with us, but as Christians we must remember that we were not built to carry the things that weigh us down. Our job is to give it to the Lord and remember we can do NOTHING in our own strength and capabilities without Him. So if you are going through something today, however big or little it may be, give it to God and ask Him to take it from you. He is your rock and fortress in times of distress, and He will cover you with His wings and take away your burdens. Remember, He loves you so much that He doesn’t want to see you in pain. When you hurt, He hurts, and when you cry, He cries. So talk to Him. Love on Him. And most importantly, give it to Him, for He will grant you peace.
