Yet the Lord also gives us comfort, as today’s readings testify so beautifully
As Isaiah says, so we say,
My soul yearns for you in the night;
yes, my spirit within me looks early for you....
LORD, you will ordain peace for us...
And our Lord Himself says,
Come to me,
all you who labor and are heavy laden,
and I will give you rest.
Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me;
for I am meek and lowly in heart:
and you shall find rest for your souls.
For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.
