This is the great thing about freedom and letting Jesus be the focus of our schedules! The easiness and lightness of it.
Our demands in our schedules feel heavy a lot of times. Especially when they are things we don’t necessarily want to do. (Although, I have to admit I really enjoy most of the scheduled things I have and I am doing them for that reason, they just tend to get heavier the more of them there are!) But what I really desire is that free,easy, light feeling of when I leave time to relax and rest in my schedule. Don’t we all? Isn’t that why we look so forward to vacations and weekends?
So why don’t we do as Jesus says? Why don’t we take up His light burden and easy yoke? Why do we make it heavy and hard? Why in our culture does everything have to be done to the nth degree? What Jesus calls us to is simplified.
I haven’t figured out how I am going to simplify, but it is coming in the winds. I need it. My kids need it. My husband needs it.
