“Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. 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. For my yoke is easy and my burden is light.” -Matthew 11:28-30
Life is better relaxed. Whatever it is you’re going through, you and God are going to get through this. So today, you can drop your shoulders, you can take a deep breath, and you can think about good things. I want you to know although life has its many challenges, you can let those things go to God. He is strong and faithful enough to deliver all of us, and that’s a promise. So you and God are getting through whatever it is you’re going through so you can let go today. Life is an anxious thing, isn’t it? We need to constantly train ourselves to let go in a world that makes us feel worried. We have to recognize that there are many things that we can’t control. Instead, we need to learn to abandon those outcomes to God so that we can live every day with joy, vision, and passion.
PRAYER: Dear God, help me to rest in you.
REFLECTION: How can you hand your burdens to God this week?
