Here is Your Rest; Don’t Delay

“Come to me, all you who labor and are burdened, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am meek and humble of heart; and you will find rest for your selves. For my yoke is easy, and my burden light.” -Mt. 11:28-30

Sometimes we think that God asks a lot of us: follow these commandments, do and don’t do these things, forgive one another, be with Me in prayer, come to church on Sunday, etc… Burdened by the weights of this world, we feel we have no time or energy left for the “tasks” of our faith. But the reality is that what Our Lord asks of us is meant to free us and feed us, to protect us and strengthen us in Him so that we can face the challenges of our daily lives. While the burdens of this world are heavy and draining, those of Our God are light and life-giving. We ask God, “where are you in my life?” but we keep away from Him. Don’t delay any longer. Come to Him. Don’t let the burdens of your life keep you away. He wants to lift you up and give you rest. +
