A Daily Devotion for Wednesday, Feb. 22

Matthew 11:28-30

"Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened; and I will give you rest. 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. For my yoke is easy and my burden is light."

This metaphor has always been confusing to me. The burden Jesus carried was not a light one. But I get the idea; we can lighten our burden if we rely more on Christ and less on ourselves. Maybe Jesus is saying, "Count more on me, and less on yourselves. I can handle it." Rest in Jesus. I know I do not do this simple thing nearly often enough.

Holy One, my mind and heart are so often full of stressful worry. Help me to see the opportunities for rest during my times of stress. It is rest in you which I need. Amen

Becky, transforming
