"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 11:29-30 https://www.lds.org/scriptures/nt/matt/11.29-30 ).
May we all come to know the love of the Savior of our souls, have him take our burdens, and in him find rest. He descended below all things in the Garden and on the cross so that he would have the gentleness and compassion to comfort and lift us in our trials. He is the gentle Christ.
As you pray to our Father in Heaven, I hope you take the time to thank him for the gift of his only begotten son, our loving Savior, and let the Father know how much you love him and the Savior. Then take a moment to feel of the Love he has for you, the love which changes all.
You will never be the same again.
