His Yoke is Easy

"Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, 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

Words that jump out about me from this passage in Matthew are weary, burdened, rest, gentle, humble, rest, easy, and light. The hard words are the ones that describe us, and the soft words are the ones that describe Jesus. He wants to make a shift in our lives and our thinking from a place of being overwhelmed and incapable to a place of peace and reliance on Him to give us relief in our situations.
