Knowledge Is Strength

Inner peace means being mentally and spiritually at peace, with enough knowledge andInner peace understanding to keep oneself strong in the face of discord or stress. Peace of mind is generally associated with bliss (joy), happiness and contentment. Being at peace is the exact opposite of being stressed or anxious.

Taking Jesus’ yoke upon ourselves is simply allowing Him to come into our lives. When we do, He will give us rest for our souls. I liken it to a mother beckoning her child to come and sit on her lap. A child in a mother’s loving arms knows he is safe and all is well.

If we’re weary and burdened, we need to climb into the lap of Jesus, and let Him wrap His loving arms around us. Yes, it is that simple.

Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. Matthew 11:29

    Interesting comparison, as it is often our children that cause us the biggest stress (anxiety, worry) and we want to call them to us( when we see that they are too anxious, or excited) and calm them. When they don’t come to us, (as older children often do not) our choice is to become more anxious or Pray to God to take care of our Children where we can no longer knowing that God will give us both peace and wisdom.
