Resting in the Presence of a Friend

Matthew 11:28-30 “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.”

Come – Jesus is inviting you to His loving presence.

You who are weary and burdened – Recognize your need, it is okay to be weary in His presence.

I will give you rest – Come to Him ready, expectant to receive. 

Take my yoke – He is offering a change, a different approach to life.

Learn from me – Come ready to learn, He wants to teach you a new way.

I am gentle and humble – He is a gentle, loving friend who will mentor you personally.

You will find rest – Your life will change; you will find a new place, a new form of being.

My yoke is easy – You can do this; He will help you more than you can imagine.

My burden is light – It is a different burden; you will be able to dance under this weight.

Did you know how much Jesus truly loves you?  I invite you to pray and think on the wonderful truth that is before you in these verses.  Jesus is truly inviting you today. Come to Him today and discover true love, a purpose and presence that will change your world.  Come….
