So often there are things in life that way you down; too many bills, personal heart aches, marriage break downs but in Matthew 11:28 Jesus says “Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened and I will give you rest.”
What a great hope, a great encouragement. If you are struggling this week, if the burden of life is to much, Jesus is just waiting to hear about it. Jesus is ready to take away your burdens and give you much needed rest.
If you have been feeling like life wasn’t meant to be this way, that it’s too hard – you are right. This heartache that you are going through, this horrible divorce, this wondering if you will be able to feed your family is the sign pointing to the fact that this life isn’t all that it should be.
These troubles point to the life that is to come where there won’t be any heartache or pain. There won’t be any sadness or fear. If you are struggling this week, give it to Jesus. It won’t make your problems disappear straight away but it will give you the confidence that you don’t need to worry about it anymore because Jesus is.
