Yoked and Un Burdened! I so wanna be that!!

Yoked but Unburdened ~~~~ I absorb and soak in Christ’s words in Matthew 11: 28-30
“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.”

Jesus invites us to rest in Him. But it’s not resting from life. It’s resting in life.

It’s resting from 'doing life' our way and learning to 'do life' God’s way. I fail at this often, DAILY even and make life waaaaay to hard for myself and the ones closest to me.

When we do it our way, our burdens wear us out. How often have I been totally worn out, frustrated,infuriated and just exhausted? Too too many times!!When we do it God’s way, we still have burdens. We even have a yoke.

But we’re yoked to Christ which means we can let the heaviness of the burden rest on His shoulders. Really? Seriously?? Lord, you want my junk and crap. It's ugly and heavy, very heavy and You want it?! Yes ... so then Lord, here please take it; help me learn how to do it Your way.

If you’re feeling weary and heavy burdened, go to Christ today and take His yoke.
