What an Exchange

Description

Today, make a conscious effort to lay your burdens at Jesus’s feet.

Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, 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

Boundaries are hard to maintain on a daily basis. But God tells us that we do not have to walk this journey alone. He is with us. If we will choose to share our burdens with God, he will lighten them. Words cannot explain how God does this, because only he knows. But, we can thank God for taking our burdens and making them easier to bear.

Today, make a conscious effort to lay your burdens at Jesus’s feet. Jesus says he is gentle and humble in heart. Take the burdens in your life, that way you down, and lay them at the feet of Jesus and pick up his “rest” for your soul.  What an exchange!

Prayer

Father, being a mom is one of the hardest jobs I have ever had and yet the most fulfilling. I want to include you in every part of my journey of motherhood and invite you to bear my burdens with me each step of the way. Thank you for sharing my highs and lows and for your promise to be there for me. I give you all the glory and praise! Amen
