Where: To Me…
When: Anytime you are feeling weary,
burdened with sin, with life,
about to give up…
Why: Because I will give you rest…
How: I am offering to pull this heavy
load with you. Team up with me.
I will take the burden from
your shoulders and put it on mine.
Now, keep in mind,
this doesn’t mean I do all the work.
It means we pull together
through this struggle called life.
I offer my strength, my peace, my love.
You offer your willing obedience.
If you fight against me, instead of pulling with me,
the load will get heavy again.
If you demand your own way, I will let you go.
This is an invitation, not conscription.
I am gentle, yet strong.
I will not take you where you cannot go.
You can trust me.
The prize: A lightened burden…
a ceasing of struggle…
For my yoke is easy, and my burden light.
Matthew 11:28-30, KJV
