O bless the Lord, my soul – Psalm 102(103):1-4, 8, 10.

‘Come to me all you who are weary and are carrying heavy burdens and I will give you rest.’

Today’s gospel calls us to trust. At this time of year, we can feel the weight of work, stress and worry. We may be exhausted and struggling. Even the strongest among us stumble. Our ever-loving God is offering to shoulder our load, renew our strength, and empower us to face our daily challenges.

Dear Lord, help me to entrust my burdens to you so that I may soar on wings like eagles; run and not grow weary; walk and not feel faint. Even though I may not have realised it, thank you for carrying me through those times I needed you the most. Help me find rest for my soul.
