Trust in Eternal Love


Keep in mind…that God wants to comfort you.

(Listen to my song “Mercy Reigns” by clicking HERE)


Matthew 11:28
“Come to me, all you who labor and are burdened, and I will give you rest.”


Jesus was speaking to the people burdened by being held to the letter of the law by their religious leaders.

Sometimes life hands us situations that do not fit so easily into “black and white” categories. We must look at these situations…through the lens of love and compassion.

Jesus simply invited people to bring their struggles to him. There was no judgment…no condemnation…only acceptance and mercy.

Jesus invites us to follow his ways with the assurance that this path will bring us inner peace.

Are you struggling with issues in your life or your faith?

Let Jesus’ words be a comfort to you.

God looks at you through the lens of unconditional love.

Allow that gaze to settle upon you.

Share that gaze with others who struggle in the “gray” areas of life’s issues.

And while you’re at it…let your loving gaze…fall upon yourself…and find rest.
