June 1st – Matthew 11:29

Matthew 11:29

Sometimes it seems life has a way of kicking us when we’re down.  And just when we think we can’t get any lower, we get kicked again. But in His great love, Jesus offers rest for our souls, and to share in the carrying of our burdens. For His yoke is easy and His burden light. A yoke is a wooden beam normally used between a pair of animals, to enable them to pull together when carrying a load. What a beautiful image of the perfect partnership.  Jesus, is our perfect Partner. When our hearts are weary, He offers to work shoulder to shoulder with us and help to carry our load. There is no better place to be then partnered with the Lord, trusting Him to set the direction and pace for our lives. For as Proverbs 3:5-6 tells us, “Trust in the Lord with all your heart and do not lean on your own understanding. In all your ways, acknowledge Him, and He will make your paths straight.”
