Today was just one of those days that didn’t quite start the way I wanted it to. I woke up tired and already felt like I could crawl right back into bed. It just started out as one of those days where you question your own abilities to handle everything God has given you.
Can I really be the kind of wife he’s enabled me to be?
Can I truly mother my children the way he equipped me to?
How about that career that my heart constantly longs after? Am I able? Can I still pull off those dreams and at the same time handle everything else including being a wife, mother, daughter, friend?
Can I just crawl back into bed and pretend that it’s not quite morning yet?
I wish I could just say that I snapped out of it before my feet hit the floor. But no!
A few hours had gone by until I finally let that inner voice remind me of his promises that are always Yes in Jesus.
Matthew 11:28-30 (MSG)
“Are you tired? Worn out? Burned out on religion? Come to me. Get away with me and you’ll recover your life. I’ll show you how to take a real rest. Walk with me and work with me—watch how I do it. Learn the unforced rhythms of grace. I won’t lay anything heavy or ill-fitting on you. Keep company with me and you’ll learn to live freely and lightly.”
Let’s meditate on this verse this week.
Just the first part today – He’s talking to me and probably you. Those who are tired, worn out, tired of a set of rules that leave you almost lifeless!
I can sure testify of being tired of the have-tos, need-tos, must-tos. I just want to live a life full of power.
Are you with me?
