Life gets hard, y’all. But we don’t have to go at it alone.
In Matthew 11 Jesus tells us to take His yoke upon us and we will find rest.
Did you know that the word yoke – in literal terms – means a bar of wood? Farmers place this bar of wood on the shoulders of animals to unite them together while working in hopes to ease their load.
Two are better than one, right? Jesus wants to help us carry our load. He wants to take some of the weight of the world off of our shoulders. He wants us to find rest in Him.
Give it to God, y’all. That doesn’t mean you won’t have any troubles, but it does mean that God will help you carry them.
“Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls.” Matthew 11:29
