Word-Filled Wednesday - Matthew 11:28


The purpose of Word filled Wednesday is to share God’s word through photo and a verse!

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

Blessings Melanie...Look at your sweet skinny photo of you!

This is a well chosen verse & photo! You have brought me to the heights of His Presence to enJOY His rest! Many of us may be weary after all the celebration of His Resurrection & then returning to our "lives" but what a promise we have in this from Our precious Savior!

Thank you for the precious reminder & your visit! EnJOY WFW! Loving these rich colors of your new look (at least for me!)

I love this Melanie... and it is speaks of my day. I was weary today with all that has been going on, so after taking the boys to 4K, I came home and did a bit of work around the house, and then stopped, and went to Panera for a date with my Lord! We had lunch and spent some lengthy time in the Word... it was so refreshing and I definitely feel rested!


Joan said...
