“Truly my soul finds rest in God.”....Psalm 62:1(NIV)
We carry through this world two types of burdens: physical and spiritual. Physical burdens weigh us down, sap our strength, and weary our bodies. Spiritual burdens - worries, fears, sorrows - weigh us down mentally and emotionally.
We enter into soul’s rest through our relationship with God. By trusting God and pouring out our hearts to God in prayer, we find comfort, peace of mind, and freedom from fear and worry. God invites us to lay down our burdens. We are laying our burdens upon the Lord so that we no longer need to carry them ourselves.
