“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 11:29

Our bodies are flesh and bone. They fail. We get tired. Our feet get weary from a long day at work. Our emotions go haywire from caring for someone in need. We are overwhelmed from chasing after little feet or chauffeuring mini-soccer players.  However, no matter how busy life is – isn’t it wonderful to know that we rest in the arms of a loving God!?

He says in Matthew 11:28, “Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest.” He will give us rest. But, this rest is not just any rest – its divine. The Lord extends his hands out and envelops us in his strength. When we feel powerless that’s when He is the strongest.

His words of blessings will rejuvenate our bodies. Just looking to his light gives us power beyond measure. We can rest knowing that our strength does not come from the sinews and muscles in our physical body – but our might comes from an Everlasting God. His provision never runs dry!



I praise you – for you give me rest not just in the stress of life, but also in the quiet times. You are my provider and your power never runs dry in my life. Thank you for your divine rest. I can close my eyes and know you have me safe in sound in the palm of your hands.

In Jesus’ Name Amen.
