How can I practically rest in God?

Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. That is what 2 Corinthians 4 verse 16 says.

Inspite of the fact that we know that Jesus says of his yoke, it is easy and that his burden is light.
