“Come to me, all you that are weary and are carrying heavy burdens, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you, and learn from me; for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.” Matthew 11:28-30
Maybe someone you know is carrying a heavy burden. If so, perhaps today is the day to send him/her a note of encouragement (and also send prayers of strength/support?)
This Amy Grant song is a great one on the topic. Let the words and music fill your heart as you allow the burdens to lift a little from your own life and see God lifting those burdens from your loved ones too.
Enjoy the day, filled with the Spirit!
