Sunday Stillness – Who are you tied to?

Sunday Stillness – Who are you tied to?

You-are-you-tied-to

The other day I read:

“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.” (Mathew 11:28-29, NIV).

I looked at that verse again. Jesus asks us to pick up His yoke; then He asks us to learn from Him.

As you can see from my picture, the yoke is made of two places to be held.

One would be for Jesus and one would be for me. That is closeness, isn’t it? Then we can work together. I thought about that. As He would move, I would move. As He stopped, I stopped. We could talk close together. I could hear His voice.

No wonder I would find peace and rest with Him beside me.

This week let’s take on that yoke. Let’s truly PACE ourselves. (tweet this)

P. – Perfectly
A. – Aligned to
C. – Christ’s
E. – Expectations

Prayer:

Lord, thank You for telling me again and again that You are tied to me. As I let You take the lead, I always feel at rest and peace. You are the LEADER. I am the follower. Help me to P.A.C.E. myself. I don’t need to be in control and to know the outcomes. I only need to share in Your wisdom and love to find joy in living. In Jesus’ name. AMEN.

Remember to always put on the yoke of Jesus , not just to relieve the weight but to allow His direction. When Jesus is joined with us by the yoke, He is driving. Let Him drive.

Today is Sunday Stillness.

      Hi Tracy,
      I made it for Creative Tuesdays. Thanks for thinking of me. Let’s encourage one another in our study of God’s Word and in our art and in our writing.
      Blessings,
      Janis

      Laurie,
      After returning from a writers’ conference I wanted to “do it all”. But I remembered my own words – one thing at a time. That’s why I am late with comments.
      Blessings,
      Janis
