The Yoke We Bear

Have you ever wondered why life seems to come so fast?  School, family, church, the world, life in general, and it seems like everything that could go wrong, goes wrong all at once....Or am I alone in my state of life overload...

What can we do when our world is in overload and seems to be weighing us down or just to much to take??

"Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden [That's an invitation to every single one of us] and I [Jesus Christ] will give you rest."

"Take my  yoke upon you [live the Gospel of Jesus Christ], and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls[life turns out to be a little less stressful]"

We may not get to choose what happenings we have to bear, but we can decide how we bear them.  Rely on Christ, His yoke is light!

  1. Well done Elder. I am impressed with the simplicity with which you present the most important parts of the Gospel,
