We live in a world where there are so many things that exhaust & overwhelm us. Our living prophet President Russell M. Nelson, speaking in the most recent General Conference of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, shared the beautiful truth the Savior can help us feel rest from the many things that overwhelm us.
“You can overcome the spiritually and emotionally exhausting plagues of the world, including arrogance, pride, anger, immorality, hatred, greed, jealousy, and fear. Despite the distractions and distortions that swirl around us, you can find true rest–meaning relief and peace–even amid your most vexing problems.”
I find his message particularly soothing & comforting. I have already listened to his message several times.
I know that when I feel rest from the Savior then I feel hope that there is a solution to my problems that will be found or else I receive the strength that I need to carry on. Both results are miracles.
I love each of you are friends and followers so very much. I know you each carry burdens that are hard. I pray for each of you daily that you will be strengthened in the burdens you carry, that you will be healed from things from the past, that you will be protected from anything that could harm you, and that you will find the rest in your lives that the Savior promises.
We share with you today the beautiful song simply called “REST”. This was the theme for the youth of our church in 2019.

Lay your head down on His shoulder.
He can take the pain away.
He knows exactly what you need.
He’s your healer, your protector.
He came and took your place.
So come and lay your burdens at His feet.

Have a beautiful Sunday!
We love you!
