His yoke is light and He lightens our load.

Matthew 11:28 "Come to Me, all you 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." NKJV

My Comments: Life can be very difficult and challenges will come to all and if we look around the world we see Christians going through the same hardships the early Christians suffered for the Cross of Christ. The Lord tells us to pick up our Cross and follow Him not so we can live a life of ease. No, it is because to follow Him is a narrow road, a hard one yet one with the only assurance of Heaven and eternity with God the Father, Son and Holy Spirit. 
Loved ones if your heart is heavy and you are going through hard things, please know Jesus is the way the truth and the light and none can go to the Father except through Him and none can go to Heaven that do not accept Him as Lord and Savior; confessing their sin, asking His forgiveness and accepting His free gift of Life in Him and He in You. I pray you ask Him now into your heart so in the hard times (and they will come to all) He can be there with you and help you through them to the other side and make you whole. He never promised our road would be free of trials yet He does promise rest for our souls.
Abba Father, Thank You Abba, for working in all of our lives to bring us to the truth of Your Word, Jesus. Thank You Jesus, for dying in our place and paying the price for our sin. Thank You for bringing us to You and for accepting us as Yours. Thank You Abba for making us Your adopted Children when we accept Jesus, Your Son as our redeemer. Please bring all our loved ones to the saving knowledge of Jesus the Christ. In Jesus' name I pray in union with the Holy Spirit, Amen.
