A Day of Rest

Yes, the Lord´s day is often a day of rest for me from exercise. Sometimes I don´t get to rest rest though. Those in the ministry know that often Sundays become more of a day of work than rest.

Today, I am a bit heavy. We had an unexpected visit and she shared her story. We have been praying for her and she finally opened up. It is a very heavy story. Please pray for our friend and her family.

I am very thankful that the Lord knows our hearts and He can carry our burdens.

The Lord says

"Come unto me all ye that labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest, Take my yoke upon you and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart; and ye shall find rest unto your souls. For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light."
Matthew 11:28-30
So today, may you turn your burdens over to the Only One Who can take them. May you find true rest in Jesus.


  1. Praying for your friend. Praying for you guys as well.

    My Sunday was a tough one too.

    Pray for us, please.

  2. I pray that you are able to give the heaviness over to the Lord--I know what you mean about bearing the burden, and I love that you have the perfect scripture for it!!!

  3. You just dont know I needed that vs today, so much I needed it,
    hummm,its just amazing!
    Thank you,
