Come To Him

"Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest." Matthew 11:28
"To every toiling, heavy-laden sinner, Jesus says, Come to me and rest. But there are many toiling, heavy-laden believers, too. For them this same invitation is meant. Note well the words of Jesus, if you are heavy-laden with your service, and do not mistake it. It is not, Go, labor on, as perhaps you imagine. On the contrary, it is stop, turn back, Come to me and rest. Never, never did Christ send a heavy laden one to work; never, never did He send a hungry one, a weary one, a sick or sorrowing one, away on any service. For such the Bible only says, Come, come, come." Hudson Taylor

I want to encourage any of you who are going through trials, to continue to trust in Jesus. "Consider it pure joy!". The Lord hears your cries and He will be faithful to answer your prayers and supplications in His perfect timing. Do not be anxious about anything and patiently seek Him first, every moment, every day and in every situation! He is who has promised is faithful! Don't look towards your own problems, but instead, look to Jesus, the Author and Perfecter of your faith. Seek not to gain other's help, but seek to help others. It is much better to give than to receive.  I love you all dearly and know that I pray for you all often as you seek His face. Never forget just how worthy He is!

Joyfully His,
