Finally–Immediately

IMG_1861Lord


You said so gently


So persistently


‘Give me your weariness


And I will give you rest."’


I did – finally.


You did – immediately.


Then, Lord, I marveled


That I had waited so long.


Then Jesus said, ‘Come to me, all of you who are weary and carry heavy burdens, and I will give you rest.’ Matthew 11:28 (NLT)


from the writings of Ruth Harms Calkin

  4. This is wonderful! I love the scripture and sometimes we make it so hard on ourselves trying to fix and carry our own burdens. I'm so thankful we have the Lord.
    Bless you, Dear Adrienne.
