Thankful Thursday - His Yoke

"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."
Matt. 11:28-30

How wonderful to consider and accept the invitation given by Jesus. In today’s world it is so easy to become overburdened by family concerns, work challenges social conflicts. Thankfully, Christ has the answer to all that might perplex and cause us to struggle.
I have found that one must be willing to surrender the compulsion to fret and worry over how to solve various problems that we face. We really have to let go of these troubles and let God reveal, in His own time, the solution to our stresses and pain.

Two songs come to mind that express the message of the scripture passage.

Take your burdens to the Lord and leave it there;
Leave it there, Leave it there
Take your burdens to the Lord and leave it there.

Burdens are lifted at Calvary,
Calvary, Calvary…
Burdens are lifted at Calvary,
Jesus is very near.
  1. Today I am especially grateful for the flaming yellow forsythia that brightens the back yard and many front yards as I drive along the streets. Also, for the blossoming trees in pinks and whites.
  2. I’m also thankful for strength to get things done, despite being a bit under the weather this week.
  3. As to things which have me a bit worried, I look confidently to the Lord’s solutions.
