It’s one of those Facebook things that you see from time to time. I just found it intriguing that someone made this up.
Matthew 11:28-30. 28 Come to me, all who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. 29 Take my yoke upon you, and learn from me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. 30 For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.”
What defines your life? Money? Art? Things? A cause? Your family or marriage?
All of us will choose something, even if by default, that will define our lives.
Jesus tells us that if we will choose Him and allow Him to define our lives, it will be easier than the weight the world will put on our shoulders. The world will always weigh you down with more than you can bear. But Jesus says that He will come beside us and help us carry that load.
Jesus is able to do more for you than you can do for yourself.
PRAY: Dear Jesus, define my life and help me carry this heavy load. AMEN
Oh, and what was the #1 song on my 14th birthday?
