If there is one thing I know for truth in this world it would be that Jesus Christ is my Saviour and when I am seeking Him my life is a grand adventure....when I am wrapped up in myself and not making time for Him it is one dreary task after another.
Daily tasks are the devil's greatest weapon, they preoccupy my time, even when I am doing one I am thinking about the next one. When I finally sit down for some quiet time with God all I can think about is what I haven't accomplished that day. This invasion of the mind starts small. I can be firmly rooted in God and nothing bothers me then before I know it I have let my guard down just a little (that is all it takes.....just a smidgen) and I hear one little whisper, then another, then another and then before you know it I am engaging in a time wasting conversation with myself and I am weighed down with burdens (usually self imposed). This is the tricky part...how long do I carry these burdens?
Blessed be the Lord, who daily bears our burden, the God who is our salvation. Psalm 68:19
That is just it.....I don't have to carry the burden or burdens, I have a Saviour who will carry it for me, it is my choice to hold on to those burdens. How do I overcome such a curse?
"Come to Me, all who are weary and heavy-laden, 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
Jesus in the above passage reveals to me that I need to rest in Him. I seem to go around the same mountain over and over but my hiking boots are wearing out and I am in need of a spiritual alignment. I will stop and find rest in my true love for He gave His all that I might have life....not a puny life but a life more abundant.
