“a Lamp to my feet. a Light for my path.” – Matthew 11:28

TODAY’S WORD…

.

Jesus said,

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

and I will give you rest.”

.

– Matthew 11:28 (NRSV)

.

REFLECTION…

.

We are tired and weary,

dragging our feet under the weight of our burdens,

and we respond to the Lord’s call and promise

…and we go to Him.

.

If, as we approach Jesus, we stop focusing on ourselves

and, instead, fix our eyes on Him,

we will experience an indescribable joy

– that joy which comes, in spite of the burdens,

from knowing that Jesus is Lord

and that He is there with us…always.

.

Approach Jesus with eyes fixed firmly on Him,

and you will see yourself and your burdens in a different light.

Suddenly, all that counts is being in His presence,

all that matters is knowing that He loves you beyond measure!

QUOTE…

.

“Jesus says now and always,

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

and I will give you rest.’

His attitude towards us is one of invitation, knowledge and compassion;

indeed, it is one of offering, promise, friendship, goodness, remedy of our ailments;

He is our comforter; indeed, our nourishment, our bread,

giving us energy and life.”

.

– Blessed Pope Paul VI

.

.

REPETITIVE PRAYER FOR TODAY…

.

Here I am Jesus, my God, my Saviour;

here are my burdens, my worries, my sufferings,

but here too is my joy

which comes from knowing that You love me

and that You are my Lord.

I love You, Jesus, and I praise and thank You!
