"Come to me, all who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you, and learn from me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light." Matthew 11:28-30

Do you feel like you are missing something in your life? Does your life seem shallow? Are you weary and heavy laden? Do you turn to worldly pursuits to give you purpose? Perhaps, one just wants it their own way, but Jesus challenges this attitude, comparing it to children who demand that others play their games according to their rules and pout when things don't go exactly their way. (Matthew 11:16-17)

God seeks a loving relationship with each one and gave his own Son to die on the cross to show how much He loves humans. When one repents of their sins and begins to follow Jesus, lives become balanced. There is redemption. Repentance, then redemption. A balanced life. The surprising God of Jesus Christ turns expectations upside down, breaks open hearts, and makes one see beyond themselves.
