In Matthew 11:28, Jesus said, “Come to me all who labor and are heavy laden and I will give you rest.” I can ask the Lord to carry my cross and to help me with all my burdens.
A child is not always pleased by what a loving parent does, and yet…”We know that in everything God works for our good” (Romans 8:28).
I can find God’s hand in the events of each day because “the old has passed away, behold the new has come” ( II Corinthians 5:17). With God, new doors are opening in my life and they lead the way to a fuller life.
