Come To Poppa

“Come unto me, all ye that labour 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 ye shall find rest unto your souls. For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.
Matthew 11:28

Have you ever felt like a ship adrift at sea . . . . tossed about by the winds and waves . . . . driven by turmoil and unrest?  Where is the compass that will direct us home to safe harbor?  Where is the anchor that will still our constant motion?  Where is the voice that can cause the storm to instantly cease and bring us into calm waters?  Thankfully, the peace and rest that we seek . . . . the direction that we so desperately need . . . . the place of refuge that we long for . . . . these are only a heartbeat away when we call upon the name of Jesus.

Jesus was sent to earth to show us what Father God is like and to bring us back Home to Him. He alone can reveal to us Poppa's heart, and He simply says. . . . . come.  He doesn't set prerequisites, He just says to come.  Could it really be that easy? 

It has been said that a journey of a thousand miles begins with one step.  Come . . . . come . . . . come to Me and I'll give you rest.  Come to Me and I'll teach you everything you need to know.  Come to Me and I'll bear the burdens that you were never meant to carry.  Come . . . . come to Me. 

He is waiting.  Will you step out on the invitation which sounds too good to be true?  Will you lay down your own struggling and striving and settle down into His love for you?  Will you simply come?  He's waiting with open arms.  Come to Poppa.


"Jesus answered, 'I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.'"  John 14:6
