“a Lamp to my feet. a Light for my path.” – 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.”


– Matthew 11:28-30 (NRSV)






This is how it is when I focus on Jesus

and go to Him with a humble heart

– He lightens my burdens and He gives me rest!


Life very often weighs us down,

and anxiety, disappointments and sadness can easily take over.

. .

Lifting heavy burdens all by ourselves – will only destroy us.

We need to share our burdens with Jesus;

to listen carefully to what He tells us;

to remove any stubbornness and pride

and to humbly and faithfully obey Him and follow His directions,

and that will help us find rest and peace.






Please lighten my burdens, Lord.

I love You, Jesus. I trust in You, Jesus.

Lead me, Lord.
