DAILY DEVOTION - MARCH 17
Come to Me, all you that are weary and are carrying 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)
Jesus said, “I will give you rest.” For many, rest in these days has become elusive. We may find ourselves lying awake thinking of those we love, those who are fragile and vulnerable to illness, those whose health we may be unable to protect. Our fears are heavy upon us, yoking us to restless nights as we shoulder the burdens that loving others bring.
Such beautiful words our Savior whispers: “Come to Me.” Come when you are fearful. Come when you are weary. Come and learn of the greatest love the world has ever known. Come to know the gentle and humble heart of the One Who rested on the beams of the Cross for your salvation. Come to Jesus. Rest in His love.
Let us pray with our CPC sisters and brothers….
We come to You, our beautiful Savior. At Your invitation and by Your promise we rest in Your love, knowing that Your hand is upon our shoulder, Your step beside us, and Your heart yoked to ours in Selfless love. Let us spin Your words within our mind, “Come. Come to Me, you who are weary, and lay down your burdens.” Amen.
