Some of you may have concerns about whether you will have a job next month. You may have concerns about your health or the health of a family member. Some of you are concerned about your teenager - will they make the right decisions, you wonder. There is apprehension about the economy and the direction our country seems to be taking. Are you weary and burdened with the difficulties of life? Anyone need a little rest from your concerns? God calls us to come to Him when life seems heavy - more than we can bear. "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) Whatever is weighing you down, the solution is the same - Jesus says, "Come to me . . . . . . . . and I will give you rest." We must make a conscious effort to let our worries go. We have to deliberately give all our concerns to Him and then trust Him to take care of our needs. Christ is gentle and humble in heart which is just the opposite of the worldly things we face. Most of us could use a good dose of gentleness and humbleness of heart about now. Prayer: "Lord, I come to You and ask You to help me lay my concerns, worries, and burdens at Your feet. Help me let go of all that is weighing me down and take Your yoke for it is easy and your burden is light." In Him, Kay Martin

Blogging is a new thing for me so, today, I am "just beginning." I plan to use this blog to post my weekly Sunday School class devotional that I pen each week. Just in case there are those who don't want to receive it, they will now have the option to log on to my blog and read it - or not.
