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.

At different points of life we face different situations. Sometimes we are in such trails and a difficult situation. We are pressed against a corner and feel like there is no situations out. We don't know where to turn to. Have you ever felt it. Even breathing gets difficult. We are burdened, we feel we cannot take another step. This is the point we need to tun to our father who is waiting for us instead of trying to do everything by ourselves. We need to give up trying to do it by ourselves. I have realized how difficult that is, to completely give control. When I did that, I could feel the comfort. The situation did not change but I am not anxious, I did not feel burdened anymore. Just as he said he will give rest. Just then I could see the situation
start dissolving, help comes from different place. I realized the situation I was in was just a learning process for me that God wanted me to learn to lean on him and experience his rest.

When we take his Yoke, and walk with him, we start learning to be like him. Gentle and humble in situations where we have not been. we would learn his patience, gentleness. In midst of a storm, to keep our eyes fixed on him and not at the storm, we would only receive peace and rest. If we yoke with him and go in our own ways, it is very difficult to walk. This is what many christians face. Let us just walk with him and find rest for our souls.

His burden is light. Once we are aligned with him, we do not feel the burden. Let's stay focused on him, walk with him, meditate his words and find the rest we need. A calmness in the storm.
Praise God!
