"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 shall find rest for your souls. "For My yoke is easy, and My load is light."
It is so comforting to know that no matter what "hard" we are going through, whether it is a simple day like mine, or something more, like a battle with cancer, or the loss of a loved one, that God will bear our burden for us, that He will give us rest. Just rereading this and meditating on it calmed my soul, and my mind, and opened my heart. It made me realize just how thankful I am. Thankful for my children, husband, family, friends, pets, home, etc. But mostly thankful for my God, who lives in me, who loves me, who fills my life with joy, and hope and peace and who takes my worry away and replaces it with relief. So tonight I just wanted to share that and hope that you too, have that hope and joy peace and relief in your life. And on a lighter note, I'll leave you with this video, which also came to mind during my "hard" day ;)
