Some days, I am soul weary. The little irritations of life wear me down. I get discouraged by plans that fail. Fatigued from trying to carry my own burdens, I stumble in despair.
In the craziness of life and trying to juggle everything on my agenda, I’ve forgotten who holds the future. I’ve forgotten who has the strength to carry all of my burdens and more. And I’ve forgotten who knows my future.
For it was Christ who carried my greatest burden at the cross, surely He can carry all these little burdens on my heart today. He knows the plans He has for me and the work He is preparing me for.
As I wait and rest in His strength, I place I hope in this promise: “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.” Matthew 11:28-30
