Rest For My Soul


Matthew 11:28-30

“Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, 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.”

We all bear burdens and wearies in different ways, for different reasons, and often at different times. Our weariness results from life’s complexities, bodily frailties, emotional heartbreaks, and the consequences of our choices. When we are weary, we are easily discouraged and can give into unbelief. Jesus offers himself as the universal solution to all that burdens us. He has in mind a change of life, a transformed lifestyle through a relationship with Him. We should believe in who He claims to be and what He is able to do for us. Our souls only find rest in hope and faith. And faith is believing and abiding on the hopeful promises of God. Jesus offers us a light burden by simply trusting Him. So don’t ever lose faith regardless of the circumstance. Always believe, abide, and follow Jesus’s example and you will find rest for your soul.
