28 Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. 29 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. 30 For my yoke is easy and my burden is light.
Wow. I sure need this today! Many times I’ve prayed for the Lord to share my yoke, to take my burdens, to set me free. Once again, I find myself at His feet, touching His cloak, wiping His feet with my hair. I came to you with a servant heart God, I prayed for direction, for wisdom. You answered my prayer and opened a door. Not the one my flesh wants, but the one my soul needs. Thank you Father God for your love, your hope, your encouragement… and for the opportunity to stretch my seams. To grow from the inside out. You know me better then I know myself. Before you formed me in my Mother’s womb, you knew me. Before I was born, you set me apart. I will humble myself, leave my bondage and inhibitions behind, step through that door, and serve your Kingdom with a servant heart. Help me to pray with fervent prayer, to meet others needs above my own. To forget my old self, deny my flesh, and meet you on the other side. My spirit is willing God, but my flesh is weak. I can do all things through you, who strengthens me. I need your courage, your Spirit to guide me. You are a good God. A God who answers, who delivers. A God who does not abandon, but stays by my side every step of the way.
Praise you God for your grace and mercy, your hope and love. I seek first your kingdom and your righteousness. I will not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself.
