Matthew 11: 28-30

Come to me, all you that are weary and are carrying heavy burdens, 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.

So Many Needs

Come to me, all you who labor and are burdened, and I will give you rest.  —Matthew 11: 28

Today I bring to you the usual assortment of cares and troubles, Lord.  Family members are sick and need healing.  Friends are jobless, struggling with addictions or depression, and worried about their children. The arthritis is pestering me.  My friend’s grand scheme to help the poor is in need of some help itself.  Upon these and many other concerns, shower your grace and mercy!

Prayer

Lord, when hardship, disappointments, and overwhelming fear seem to stomp out my spirit, I come back to you.  I remember your promise, “…you will find rest for your souls.”  When I try to take on all the challenges by myself, I lose my perspective. I even can feel defeated. Yet when I recommit to you, and take things as they come, my confidence is restored and I again know joy!
