Come Unto Me

Are you looking for someone to be gentle
With your broken heart your shattered dreams
And are you searching for someone who'll be faithful
To you no matter what life brings
Well i know the maker of the storm the sunrise
He is both the lion and the lamb
He is strong enough to shake all earth and heaven
Yet meek enough to take me as I am.

He says come unto to me
All who are weary
And I will give you rest
Bring what hurts
Bring your scars
Bring the load that you carry
And I will give you rest

Are the clouds above your head oh so heavy
Bursting with showers of despair
And do you struggle under more then you can carry
Has life given more then you can bare
And would you like to trade your failures in for victories
Like piles of ashes in from piles of gold
And can you fall down like a child who is helpless
So he can pick you up and make you whole
(Chorus x2) --Nicole C. Mullen

Matthew 11:28-30

28"Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. 29Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. 30For my yoke is easy and my burden is light."
Instead of copying the outline here, I'll encourage you to go check out the commentary for this verse. The above song by Nicole C. Mullen puts music behind the verses and applies these verses to our lives today. The Savior gives a tender invitation...to who? What does He offer if we accept it? What does he expect from those who respond? What is the true ease of accepting this invitation? Explore these questions here and listen to the song "Come Unto Me" here.
