Rest, by Julie Barrios

Jesus invites us all with his words, "Come to me all who are weary and heavy laden, 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."

Let's imagine the gentle, humble Jesus, inviting us to come to him just as we are.  He holds a space for you and welcomes you in.  Is there anything you want to say to Him?  Perhaps you simply want to be silent with Him.

Lord, we receive your care.  Would you help us always to return to you, to trade in our heavy yoke for your light yoke.  Help us to live that way today.  In Jesus name, Amen.
