My yoke is easy and my burden is light

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.

Mat 11:28-30

 

A beautiful word of encouragement from our wonderful Bridegroom, Jesus, who is coming for us very soon!

Trust me!

My beloved, trust me in all you do, in every moment of your life.

Trust me to lead you in all you do.

Trust me, and don’t worry about the things you’re not doing.

Be at peace.

Stress and striving

When you think about the things you haven’t done, about the things you think you should be doing, you lose your peace.

When you are frustrated, anxious or worried, this means you are doing things in your own strength, and you need to stop and listen to me.

Rest in me, and let go of your own striving. 

Enter my rest!

When you are in the moment, enjoying what I’ve given you to do in the moment, that’s when you are in me and in my rest.

One thing at a time…one step at a time.

Yes, there is a lot you could do. And you have many ideas.

But you can only do one thing at a time,

and you can only take one step at a time.

Trust that I am leading you, and you do know my voice.

I love you, my beautiful bride!

I love you so much, and I long to gather you into my arms and to hold you.

I am coming for you, and I am coming very soon!

 

Do you know Jesus Christ as your Lord and Saviour?

Do you have a relationship with him?

If not, here is a prayer you can say.
 
Dear Jesus, I am a sinner, and I need you. I thank you for going to the cross to die for me, and for rising again.
 
I am sorry for everything I have ever done wrong, and I ask you to please wash me clean. I ask you to come into my life to be my Lord and saviour, and I surrender to You.
 
Please fill me with your Holy Spirit and make me whole. Help me to trust you; help me to love you; help me to live for you. Thank you Lord Jesus, Amen
 
Whenever we do wrong after this, we need to say we’re sorry and ask for his forgiveness. We need to ask Jesus to help us to change.
 
Talk to him every day, and listen to him, as he wants to talk to you!
 
Get a bible: I suggest you begin by reading the Gospels and the Psalms. This will help you to get to know God.
 
Ask the Holy Spirit to fill you.
 
Jesus doesn’t promise to make life perfect, in fact there may be more hardship and suffering in following him, but he does promise to give us a purpose and a future: a reason to live!
