28"Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. 29Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls.
I love how Jesus invites us to go to Him for rest and comfort when we feel like life is getting too much for us or when we are going through something that causes hurt or pain. He promises rest for our souls when we learn from His ways.
This piece of scripture really carries me through some of those hard times!

You are so right!
Life can really throw us curve balls. No practice sessions... this is it. And I have noticed it hits me hardest when and where I am least prepared. But the wonderful thing when I call on Him is how He teaches and guides all through until we learn to trust Him no matter what comes. That trust is real rest. Like a child that can just breathe a sigh of relief.... Daddy's here. Being in covenant with Almighty God is an awesome thing. We don't have much to give but He takes it and turns it around every time..... growing and re-positioning us until we overcome... and loving us all the way through!
