Sunday Devotional: Matthew 11

“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.”  Matthew 11:28-30

These are the words of Jesus that he is spoke to the crowds that had gathered around him.  Just as the crowds that gathered around Jesus were heavily burdened, today we have times where we are heavily burdened.  Whether those burdens are physical, mental, emotional or spiritual, we all have burdens to bear that sometimes can be overwhelming.  The great thing is that Jesus knows about our burdens and is there to help us through those times.  We can find rest in Christ if we allow Him to take control.  So in the midst of trying times, turn to Him.  You can find peace there with Him.
