Matthew 11:28

Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest.-Matthew 11:28

This is one of God's most awesome promises. He's telling you to run into his arms!This verse has come up in my life so much this week. On www.carepages.com I follow those of several children and their families and their struggles with cancer, and this week all I could think about was this wonderful promise that God offers us all. This verse is letting us know that when the storms of this life come o knockin God is there, he wants to comfort us. He wants us to know his amazing love. I think this verse has another side too though, he's telling you to believe that he is there, that he is all powerful, he has it all and he wants YOU . So however you look at it its an amazing scripture, one that if you let it can feel you with peace. So what do you think?
