Jesus said, “Come to me, all you who are struggling hard and carrying heavy loads, and I will give you rest.” - Matthew 11:28 (CEB)
As I was picking blueberries one July morning, I watched the heavily laden branches of fruit spring up little by little as the plump, juicy berries were removed. “Ahhh!” the bush seemed to say when its branches no longer hung down to the ground, putting stress on the woody stems....
Jesus will give me rest when I give my burdens to him.

I could not have found The Upper Room Moments of Prayer (on Facebook Live) sooner. For it is during these moments of centering spiritual practices, meditating on the words of scripture, praying with and for the world, that I find moments of transcendence, hear whispers of peace and hope, see glimpses of truth and justice, behold visions of love and beauty amid all the stark realities that are around me.”
