Go to Jesus

By: Jenifer Metzger

Sometimes life feels heavy. Can you feel it too?

Loss. Pain. Illness. Busyness. Stress. Burdens. A global pandemic. There is just so much. We are left reeling from the heaviness. Desperate for something, yet running on empty.

We turn to anything we can find to take our mind off the issue at hand, something to numb our spinning head. So we scroll through hours of social media, we veg out on TV, we eat more than our fill of junk food.

Then Jesus said, “Come to Me, all of you who are weary
and carry heavy burdens, and I will give you rest. Take My
yoke upon you. Let me teach you, because I am humble
and gentle at heart, and you will find rest for your souls.
For My yoke is easy to bear, and the burden I give you is light.
Matthew 11:28-30

When life feels heavy, go to Jesus. He is there waiting for you. Waiting to take your heavy burden. Waiting to exchange your burden for His light load.

You don't have to carry the heaviness. You don't have to numb out. You don't have to hurt. Go to Jesus.

It's time for Share A Link Wednesday! Each Wednesday we invite you to leave a link to your latest blog post in the comments. We still desire to connect women of God with one another and encourage each other in Christ. So grab a cup of coffee or glass of sweet tea, sit back and visit a few blogs. Be encouraged and share your own stories.


  1. Amen! I just wrote of the heaviness I am carrying. I am asking God to give me back hope and joy. This beautiful verse...oh yes! When I am yoked with the One Who died for me, there is blessed assurance. Great is Thy faithfulness.
