“‘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.’” –Matthew 11:28-30 (NIV)
Many times growing up, I would be involved in an activity at home, and my mother would enter the room. She would make herself comfortable, usually lying on my bed, and with a smile, say to me, “Tell me things and stuff.”
Things and stuff. We all have “things and stuff” in our lives. What is happening in your world, and how is it affecting you today? With whom have you shared this? Even though God knows what is occurring, He invites us to share with Him these “things and stuff.” As Matthew 11:28-30 explains, He desires to accompany us in carrying these burdens and to support us every step of the way.
Lord as we share our “things and stuff” with You, help us to trust You in lightening our load along the way. In Your name we pray this, Amen.
