Are you weary, like me!

This morning I was feeling a little down because of a health issue with Bekah! As I began to study Acts, the Lord brought Matthew 11:28 to mind "Are you weary and heavy laden?" Well that was me, so I went to my King James to find where the verse was (I couldn't remember it was Matthew). After I found it, I read it in the amplified Bible, I love how it put it there:
Matthew 11: 28-30
Come to Me, all you who labor and are heavy-laden and overburdened, and I will cause you to rest. I will ease and relieve and refresh your souls.]
Take My yoke upon you and learn of Me, for I am gentle (meek) and humble (lowly) in heart, and you will find rest (
relief and ease and refreshment and recreation and blessed quiet) for your souls.
For My yoke is wholesome (useful,
good--not harsh, hard, sharp, or pressing, but comfortable, gracious, and pleasant), and My burden is light and easy to be borne.
So if you are weary today, dragged down by the weights of your responsibilities, worries, life, remember this passage and find rest in Him!
This morning already he has blessed me abundantly!
Oh yeah, while as I searching I found this little poem that I thought may encourage you as a Mother:
In the Bible Mother Read
There's a book I've always treasured
That I'll keep where're I'm led;
It has brought me joy unmeasured,
It's the bible Mother read.
All the pages are so fingered,
Many verses underlined;
Places worn where Mother lingered,
Where she left a tear behind.
Yes, this precious book I'll cherish,
I will read it ev'ry day,
for it's truth will never perish
though the world should pass away.
God bless you today MOM's!!!

Thank you for this post Kim. The words of Matthew 11:28-30 were exactly what I needed to hear this morning.

The poem brought me to tears. My grandpa died two years ago. At his funeral, the pastor held up Grandpa's Bible. The pages were worn and had his finger prints on them. That poem was a great reminder of my grandpa!!

Love the poem, Kim! It brings memories to my mind about my Mom and her Bible (which I have now)! Thanks for putting this in your post! :)
