Jesus didn’t say, ” Come to me all who are crushing it, and I will give you rest.” He said, “Come to me, all who are weary, and I will give you rest.” If you are discouraged, tired, or weary, don’t worry. That’s exactly how Jesus expected you to come to Him.
Matthew 11:28-30 New Living Translation (NLT)
28 Then Jesus said, “Come to me, all of you who are weary and carry heavy burdens, and I will give you rest. 29 Take my yoke upon you. Let me teach you, because I am humble and gentle at heart, and you will find rest for your souls. 30 For my yoke is easy to bear, and the burden I give you is light.”
A river cuts through rock, not because of its power, but because of it’s persistence. ~ Jim Watkins
Let us not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up. ~ Galatians 6:9
Do you ever feel like you are drowning? You get hit by one wave and here comes another!
Keep in mind you are NOT alone and that even when you don’t have the strength the good news is the strength comes from somewhere else.
He gives strength to the weary and increases the power of the weak. Isaiah 40:29
In the moment when the burdens of life seem too great that is when God whispers “come to me” and I will give you rest.
He gives strength to the weary and increases the power of the weak! ~Al & Michelle
