Isaiah 26:7-19; Psalm 102; Matthew 11:28-30

Bring your heavy load to Me

How well the scriptures blend together today! With Isaiah we search for God when misfortune overwhelms us and life seems too difficult to bear. When God seems to be far from us the psalmist expresses so well our pain and feeling of abandonment. In the gospel Matthew reminds us of Jesus' invitation to come to him when we feel overburdened in misery and find our heavy load being lifted by Jesus' loving care.
