DAILY READINGS: Joshua 18:1-19:51; Isaiah 13:1-22; 1 Thessalonians 4:1-18

The Lord is nigh unto them that are of a broken heart; and saveth such as be of a contrite spirit. Psalm 34:18
Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Matthew 11:28

A failed relationship, missing out on a job you thought you would get, the loss of a loved one in death are all circumstances that can break our heart. Be encouraged! The Lord is very near during these times. He invites us to come to Him when emotional distress overwhelms us. Our Lord has promised to give us rest. Will you accept the Lord’s invitation and come to Him? —Bob Cretney

Come home, come home, ye who are weary come home;
Earnestly tenderly, Jesus is calling—Calling, “O sinner, come home!” —Will L. Thompson
