Take a moment to refresh, refocus, and refine your faith.
Lord, I tend to pile pressures on myself you never intended me to bear. I load my life with responsibilities and obligations that don’t necessarily serve your purpose and leave me overwhelmed, frustrated, and unfulfilled. You, however, invite me to leave that heavy load of my own making for your easy yoke and light burden. You fill my life with what is good and useful, not troublesome. Help me, Lord, in trusting you and letting go of the heavy things I don’t need to carry, and accepting your leadership instead. Amen.
“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.”
