“Come unto me, all ye that labour 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 28:11-20 KJV
Pastor Edmund Simon Lorenz wrote a beautiful heart touching and inspiring hymn about our precious Saviour “Tell It To Jesus”. I love these words. “Tell it to Jesus, tell it to Jesus, He is a Friend that’s well known. You’ve no other such a friend or brother, Tell it to Jesus alone.”
We don’t have to go through this life by ourselves. This world is too full of violence. Jesus, our loving compassionate Saviour, knows how it feels when we are discouraged, lonely and heartbroken. When He was here on His mission, He too experienced discouragement, loneliness and heartbreak.
If you are hurting, don’t try to carry your burden by yourself. Tell Jesus and He will be faithful to pick you up in His loving arms and carry you until the pain goes away, What a privilege we have to be loved by the Saviour of the world. O how I love Jesus. It is a privilege to serve Him.
