Jesus said, “I will give you REST.”
A stern lecture about all your defects
A guilt trip
A firm talking to
A bucketful of shame
A cloak of fear
A heart full of condemnation
A burdensome web of regret
A lengthy to do list
A threatening reprimand
The key here is our focus and faith. Let’s focus on Jesus, The Lover of our souls, our Burden Bearer.
PRAYER: Jesus, I am weary and heavy burdened. When I feel overwhelmed by circumstances or my own failures, please call to mind this verse. Please help me to come to you with the confidence of the beloved and find forgiveness, healing, and REST. Thank You. I love You. Amen.
