A young mother wrote recently, “I don’t want to live! but I can’t die. That’s too hard.” Abandoned by her abusive husband, she now lives with her parents and an aged grandmother. Her fears and guilt are overwhelming and life-threatening. In desperation, she is now reaching out daily by internet, to Prince Edward Island resident, Dr. Wallace Jorden and his family. His response, “Nothing is too hard, when we turn to Jesus in our fears and despair…and ask Him to carry our load.” Then, emphasizing the young mother’s worth and value as a person, loved unconditionally by God, Pastor Jorden wrote of Jesus’ invitation— “Come to me, all you who labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest…” That invitation is for all of us.
