Come to Me
Matthew 11:28-30 (NKJV)
“Come to me, all who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.
Take my yoke upon you, and learn from me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.”
“Come to me.” It is a simple command, yet at times it’s the last place we go when we are tired and burdened by the world.
My brother was recently diagnosed with COVID-19 and is recovering in the ICU. In addition to the local and national unrest we are experiencing, this was yet another blow to my weary soul.
The song “Rest for Your Soul” by Austin French has been a balm for my spirit, especially these lyrics: “There’s One who knows the heavy you hold.”
Praise God! He not only knows each of us and our circumstances, He walks with us through them. His load is light, and we can rest in Him when we lay our burdens at His feet. I don’t know what your heavy burden is, but He does, and all He says is “come.”
My dad, months before he went to be with Jesus, wrote today’s Scripture in a letter to me as an encouragement to find my rest in Him in difficult times, reminding me that our Lord Jesus gave us this promise. What a precious gift Jesus offers when we come to Him, and how blessed we are that He always keeps His promises.
He is gentle, He is gracious, and He is good. He offers us rest and peace that surpasses all understanding.
Let Him carry you.
