I have heard these verses numerous times and kind of already know them but I just ran across them again in a book that I am reading and it hit me in a new way… and I understood for the first time what it meant to really give something to Jesus and allow him to take care of it…
There was such a burden lifted off of my soul as I read it I had to keep reading it just to make sure I wasn’t mistaken… But God knows exactly where I am and exactly what I am going through and He knows EXACTLY how I need to handle it… which of course involves me giving Him everything to include the burdens that I carry.
Matthew 11:29-30 says,
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.
Since I ran across this the other day I have had nothing but rest and a peace that is so wonderful which has led me into a continuous praise of Thanksgiving!! His love is real and He will do everything He needs to do in order to show me and you just how real is love is!!
