Thoughtful Spot Sunday . . .

 A Helping Hand
by Jessie Wilcox-Smith

In church today, we were taught how precious the love of the Savior is and how He can lift our burdens - regardless of why we have that burden.  One of the Savior’s most comforting promises is found in, Matthew 11:28-30, this scripture has given my soul comfort many times as I have had trials that just seemed too hard to bear alone. 

“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”

One of my favorite songs is, "How Firm A Foundation", I love the message in it's words - what comfort it gives me to know that the Savior is always with me, no matter what the trial or burden I am asked to bear. 

I pray that all your burdens may be light.



  1. I love that scripture and song also. We learned it in primary last year and ever since then it has had a whole new meaning. I love having a reassurance that He is always with us and ready to help. We just need to let Him in! Love you!

  2. Love that scripture.
    Thanks for coming by !!

  3. That is one of my favorite scriptures also. I will read through the song and really think about the words. Thank you for reminding me of the sweet blessings we receive from Heavenly Father. Love you.
