31 Days of Joy: Day 16 – Matthew Speaks To Me

Yesterday I read my devotion and came across The Message version of Matthew 11:28 -30:

28-30 “Are you tired? Worn out? Burned out on religion? Come to me. Get away with me and you’ll recover your life. I’ll show you how to take a real rest. Walk with me and work with me—watch how I do it. Learn the unforced rhythms of grace. I won’t lay anything heavy or ill-fitting on you. Keep company with me and you’ll learn to live freely and lightly.”

I read the NIV Study Bible but this version really resonated with me. I find comfort and joy in the words recover, grace, freely and lightly.

These 4 words are going to be my theme for the remainder of the year and maybe into next year.

May this verse speak to your heart as well.

God bless.

  • I hadn’t read this version before. This part really spoke to me: “I won’t lay anything heavy or ill-fitting on you.”
