“Come to Me, all you who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.” Matthew 11:28
Today will be a day full of traveling for Ben and I — Over an hour on a train, hours on a plane, and then driving on top of that. We’ve had enough experiences by now to know that something always goes wrong. This, in turn, normally makes for a long and stressful journey.
We are pilgrims in this world, traveling to a heavenly home that will be beyond description. Along the way, however, the cares and burdens of the journey can rob us of our hope and joy. We become distressed travelers in desperate need of encouragement and refreshment. The Lord calls to weary pilgrims like us, “Come to Me, all you who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest” (Matt. 11:28). Only He can give us rest for our souls to strengthen us for the road ahead.
Are you distressed in your journey? Lean on Him! His love and care are there to restore your heart.
“Have you come to the end of yourself
Do you thirst for a drink from the well
Jesus is calling
O come to the altar
The Father’s arms are open wide
Forgiveness was bought with
The precious blood of Jesus Christ”
–O Come To The Altar, Elevation Worship
