Come to me, all who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.
Take my yoke upon you, and learn from me,
for I am gentle and lowly in heart,
and you will find rest for your souls.
For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.
That paintin is gorgeous and I find myself wanting to do one like it! Wonderful color and movement of the water. And, a lovely verse.ReplyDelete
Thanks, Jeanie. I found it on Creative Commons.Delete
Wonderful and comforting verse!ReplyDelete
I like this kind offer to the hard laborers (who were almost slaves in biblical times) : 'take and use my yoke which is easier than yours , and my burden is light'.ReplyDelete
It's for you and me too.Delete
A pretty image.ReplyDelete
A great Bible verse and one of my favorites!ReplyDelete
Wonderful words of comfort.ReplyDelete
Thank you, Sandi! This call of Christ is layered with meaning. Like so much that He says, it keeps speaking to our minds and hearts.ReplyDelete
He is the only source of true rest...ReplyDelete
I love this verse Sandi, it speaks to both believers and those who have not known the Lord as their Saviour yet and are struggling in this broken world. God bless.ReplyDelete
Hi Sandy! I finally am able to comment again…not sure how or why, but I take it as a sign that the Lord wants me to blog about thoughts about Him again ❤️We live in interesting times for sure. The more evil there is the greater His goodness and mercy shine through ☺️ReplyDelete
This is one of my favorite verses, Sandi. I find comfort in it when I am tired or weary or just overwhelmed.ReplyDelete
I hope these November days bring goodness to you.
Thank you SandiReplyDelete
Hi Sandi, thank you for the comment on my blog. I know about the warning. I have a feeling I know why Google did that. It has to do with cities in the Old Testament that were destroyed and that our generation is in similar danger, if you know what I mean…😟ReplyDelete
I chose the same verse today...Love.ReplyDelete
lovely art and verse !ReplyDelete
Yes, important and necessary. Lovely photo too, thanks.ReplyDelete
This verse not only comforts me when I think of being yoked to Jesus, but I pray it often for my daughter who works as a nurse in Behavior Health. The stress gets to her, you know.ReplyDelete
soothing and captivating dear the painting and words they have healing power !ReplyDelete
