Jesus, I come to you. Help me leave my burdens at the foot of your cross. Please help me enter into your rest.
"Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls." (Matthew 11:29)
Lord, I long to be yoked with you every day of my life. Thank you for your gentleness with me and the rest and peace you give me.
"For my yoke is easy and my burden is light." (Matthew 11:30)
Holy Spirit, help me daily rest in my Father's arms so that I may find the ease of Jesus' yoke and the lightness of his burden. Thank you.
Behold, I tell you a mystery: We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed--in a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trumpet. For the trumpet will sound, and the dead will be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed. (1 Corinthians 15:51-52)
LORD, I long to hear that trumpet sound and be raised up incorruptible and changed.
"I know that my redeemer lives, and he shall stand at last on the earth; and after my skin is destroyed, this I know, that in my flesh I shall see God, whom I shall see for myself, and my eyes shall behold, and not as a stranger. How my heart yearns within me!" (Job 19:25-27)
A word received: I AM your strength -- lean on me.
