LENT:day 25: saturday scripture

Pull out your notebook, your best pen… start writing …start listening… God wants to speak to you today.

Matthew 11:28

NIV: New International Version

Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest.

AMP: Amplified Version

Come to me, all who are weary and heavily burdened ( by religious rituals that provide no peace) and I will give you rest ( refreshing your souls with salvation.)

ERV: Easy Reader Version

Come to me all of you who are tired from the heavy burden you have been forced to carry. I will give you rest.

TLB . The Living Bible

Come to me and I will give you rest – all of you who work so hard beneath a heavy yoke.

The Passion Translation

Are you weary, carrying a heavy burden? Then come to me. I will refresh your life, for I am your oasis.

The Message Version

Are you tired? Worn out? Burned out on religion? Come to me. Get away with me and you’ll recover your life. I’ll show you how to take a real rest. Walk with me and work with me – watch how I do it. Learn the unforced rhythms of grace. I won’t lay anything heavy or ill-fitting on you. Keep company with me and you’ll learn to live freely and lightly.

GO ahead… carve out some time. Write the words. Pray for the Holy Spirit to open you heart to what God wants to communicate with you.

And if you have an extra minute… I’d love to hear what he had to say.
