Come to me and I will give you rest—all of you who work so hard beneath a heavy yoke. Wear my yoke—for it fits perfectly—and let me teach you; for I am gentle and humble, and you shall find rest for your souls; for I give you only light burdens.”
O my beloved God, I shall come to You and You will give me rest. I shall take Your yoke and mantle and personality upon myself and learn from You for You are gentle, meek, and lowly in heart and I will find rest for my soul. For Your yoke is easy and light and it fits me perfectly.
You want to teach me the skills of rest, and how to leap into Your loving kindness like plunging into refreshing cool waters on a blistering hot day. I will not ignore Your offer to pass my burdens and cares over to You because frustration and exhaustion will come to sink my ship of hard work, and I’ll be too tired to send them away.
So, I shall come to You now with every burden I may have; and the pressures of my life’s circumstances will subside and recede into Your care. I shall rest in You. You are reviving and energising me. In the midst of the storm, You will give me Your peace, sweet as honey, and it's lovely taste will revitalise my body, soul, and spirit. O yes, I shall rest in Jesus Christ my precious Lord, and not struggle any longer. Amen.
