Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, 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 will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.

The finish line of 2019 is fast approaching and you may be crawling or even limping toward it. If this year has been a challenging one, the turning calendar might not offer much hope as your January schedule is already filling up and your troubles follow you into the new year.
But there is hope yet! Because of Jesus, the weary world rejoices. Because God is with us, we don’t have to carry our burdens alone. Jesus Himself invites us to find rest in Him.
Thought of the day: Trusting in Jesus doesn’t promise us an easy life but trusting in Jesus makes way for a rested spirit in the midst of this broken world. Trusting Jesus grants us hope that all that’s broken will be restored one day when He comes again. As we countdown to a new year, let’s do so knowing that Jesus carries our burdens from the past and is ready to receive any burdens that the new year will bring.
Prayer: Heavenly Father, thank You for the hope we have in Jesus. Thank You that no burden is too heavy to give to You. Help me to trust You and find rest in You. Amen.
