Come To Me You Weary One

Kari Jobe

"Come to me all who are weary and carrying heavy burdens
And I will give you rest.  Take my yoke upon you.
  Let me teach you for I am gentle and humble of heart, 
and I will give you rest for your souls.  
For my yoke is easy and my burden is light."
Matthew 11:28-30

It is Holy Week and watching The Bible last night on the Lifetime channel brought to life the period of time that led up to Jesus death, and the great suffering He carried for our sins at Calvary.  "We will never know the cost to see our sins upon that cross" ~ this is a verse in a praise song that speaks so much that truth....... We will never know the depth of what it cost.

This song by Kari Jobe has been anointing me with comfort this week.  I am weary.  And yet I cannot help but ponder and give thanks for what Jesus sacrificed for me...for you.....for all.  With perfect love He opens His arms and gives us shelter from our struggles....as we remember that the cross provided rest for our souls.
