Descanso – Rest. Have you rested this summer? Jesus said:
“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
»Vengan a mí todos ustedes que están cansados y agobiados, y yo les daré DESCANSO. Carguen con mi yugo y aprendan de mí, pues yo soy apacible y humilde de corazón, y encontrarán DESCANSO para su alma. Porque mi yugo es suave y mi carga es liviana.» Mateo 11:28-30
Jesus asks us to rest, descanso, in him. What is a burden, carga, on your soul? Take a moment right now and give it to Jesus. Let him take it. Then listen to what he has for you – his carga is light.
I encourage you to start every day this week by taking a moment to give your burdens to Jesus. Then live in freedom the rest of the day, knowing that he is with you.
