Simple Reassurance

However tough life becomes and I know that life can become tough here are some precious words to never let go of…

‘Come to Me, all you who labour and are heavy-laden and overburdened, and I will cause you to rest. [I will ease and relieve and refresh your souls]. 

Jesus truly is the answer. Let me unpack this verse for you…

Feel laboured? Feel heavy-ladened? Feel overburdened?

Then come to Jesus. His desire is to ease, relieve and refresh our souls.

Is it really THAT simple? I think so. I just need to remember this more often. I don’t need to carry the weight of the world on my shoulders. I have someone who WANTS to take the load from me. More than that He tells me that in Him I WILL find rest, relief, refreshment and recreation for my soul. That all that He has for me is WHOLESOME, USEFUL, GOOD, COMFORTABLE, GRACIOUS and PLEASANT [Matthew 11:28-30 AMP]

Sounds like an impossible deal. But that’s grace. That’s Jesus. No catch, just some simple reassurance from the words of our Master.
