Robin’s Reassurance

It’s sometimes not easy. But if we lean into Jesus and give Him the chance to identify with our wounds and hurt, we will not feel so alone when things we rely on are taken away. Here’s encouragement heading into his talk:

“Are you tired? Worn out? Burned out on religion? Come to me. Get away with me and you’ll recover your life. I’ll show you how to take a real rest. Walk with me and work with me—watch how I do it. Learn the unforced rhythms of grace. I won’t lay anything heavy or ill-fitting on you. Keep company with me and you’ll learn to live freely and lightly.” (Matt. 11:28-30, The Message)
