“I have read in Plato and Cicero sayings that are wise and very beautiful; but I have never read in either of them: Come unto me all ye that labor and are heavy laden.” – St. Augustine

There are many times when we just feel so tired and exhausted. We were told to do our best and we did, but there still seems a very long way to go. We were told to give our all and we gave everything, but we have reaped nothing for all our years of labor and pain.

In times like that, we can look to Him who knows how hard we have already tried. To Him who has compassion upon us. To Him alone who can refresh us and give us rest.

O, weary one, you need not carry your burden alone. You need not feel you’re on your own. For you have a Father who cares for you, who is ready to catch you when you feel so weak that you’d fall.

Rest upon Him and let Him carry you through. Let His love empower you. Let His kindness soothe your every ache and pain. Upon His strong and loving arms, your burden becomes light and even your bitterness becomes sweet.

“Come to me, all you who labor and are heavily burdened, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you, and learn from me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart; and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.” – Matthew 11, WEB
