“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

In life, very often, people will let us down and hurt us at the times when we need them most. We’ll feel abandoned and then we’ll feel the temptation to be angry, embittered, and to assume the worst is going to happen. Today I want to encourage you not do that. That’s not you. You’re bigger than that. You’re learning to let it go and to be the kind of person that can walk every day in the easy yoke of Jesus. The easy yoke of Jesus says that life is too good in spite of all of its challenges to spend holding a grudge or worrying about this or that. Instead, we can love people despite their imperfections.


Thank you, Jesus, for your burden is light. Help me to rest in you even when life is hard.
