I fly through my Friday morning trying to cover all of my bases before the day gets away from me. My husband is sick. The baby fights his nap. I have a dance rehearsal tomorrow morning and we’re trying to get the food together for the baby’s birthday party on Sunday. I still have a couple last minute presents to buy and grocery shopping to do. In one hour we need to be at the library.
I can barely handle the little things, the rest of life is beyond my control. But He can handle the rest, the everything else, and then I can rest. I just have to hand it over. Hand it all over. The worries, the check lists and the frustration.
“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.”
A recent speaker at our MOPS group mentioned being yoked to Christ. Part of why his yoke is easy, is that he is pulling along side us, guiding us and supporting us. We don’t carry our burdens alone. Let him handle the rest so that you can rest.
