Living in the 21st Century can make you tired and worn out.
Some of the struggles or burdens include:
We were never designed to live like this. Matthew 11:28-29 says, If you are tired from carrying heavy burdens, come to me and I will give you rest. Take the yoke I give you. Put it on your shoulders and learn from me. I am gentle and humble, and you will find rest. According to the Collins dictionary, a yoke is "a long piece of wood which is tied across the necks of two animals such as oxen, in order to make them walk close together when they are pulling a plough." Jesus was telling us that he will help carry our burdens if we walk closely to him. Life is hard if we try to do it in our own strength, but if we walk in step with Jesus, we will find rest. We find this rest by reading his Word (the Bible) and meditating on it, and talking to him in prayer.
If you are struggling, go to Jesus and he will give you rest.
