Words to Encourage – Matthew 11:28

“Come to me, all who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.” Matthew 11:28, ESV

We all could use more encouragement. As we go through life, sometimes things happen that are outside of our control. Other times we have to face the natural yet perhaps unpleasant consequences of our actions and choices.

When the challenges of life are threatening to overwhelm you, do not struggle on alone. Turn to the Lord Christ Jesus for comfort and guidance. He is a loving and caring Friend who wants you to share the burdens of your heart with Him in prayer.

No matter what you are going through or how you got there, the Lord cares deeply about you. He offers you rest and peace even in the face of adversity and trials.

All He asks in return is that you let Him in to your heart so He can heal you. Depending on your wounds, it may take time to fully heal and, depending on your situation and struggles, you may stumble some along the way but never give up on trusting the Lord.

Friend, embrace the rest He has promised to give, for He loves you dearly.
