#25 – Memorize a Bible verse a week for 6 months. 15/24

Come to Me all who are weary and heavy-laden and I will give you rest. Take my yoke up on you and learn from Me, for I am gentle and humble in heart; and you shall find rest for your souls. For My yoke is easy and My load is light. Matthew 11:28-30

I love that this passage begins with a command. “COME”. Again, I am learning that God will do/ has done/ is doing so much for us, but we cannot sit idly and expect that we will be at rest. First, we take action and approach the Father. Then, he teaches us how to be more like Him. THEN, by being more like him our load becomes light. Not because the load IS light, but because with the likeness of mind with Christ and the attitude that accompanies it. Was Jesus’ life trouble free? No. Did he ever have to encounter some tough situations? Yes. But did he ever lose hope/ faith/ rest in His soul? NEVER.

I pray today that I can live like that through life’s struggles and remember this verse when times get tough.

This week… Since we’re in major wedding prep mode I’d like to focus inward a little about who I should be as a wife in 40 something days.
