Take a load off your mind

‘My yoke is easy to bear, and the burden I give you is light.’ Matthew 11:30 NLT

Jesus said: ‘Come to Me, all of you who are weary and carry heavy burdens, and I will give you rest. Take My yoke upon you. Let Me teach you, because I am humble and gentle at heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For My yoke is easy to bear, and the burden I give you is light.’ (Matthew 11:28–30 NLT) Note the words, ‘easy to bear’ and ‘give you rest’. It’s good to know we don’t have to worry about things, figure everything out, or carry the burdens in our lives. It can actually be quite refreshing to realise that we don’t need to know everything about everything! We need to get comfortable saying, ‘I don’t know the answer to this predicament, and I’m not going to worry about it because God’s in control, and I trust Him. I’m going to relax in Him and live freely and lightly!’

When we’re overburdened with the cares of life—struggling, labouring, and worrying—we need a mental and emotional break. Our minds need to rest from thinking about resolving problems, and our emotions need to rest from being upset. Worry robs us of rest and its benefits. So the next time you find yourself worried and anxious, remember, you can have ‘rest for your soul’. All you have to do is look to God for the assurance of His love, provision, and guidance.

If someone asks you what you’re going to do about your problem, tell them you’re not thinking about it right now. If they ask you why, tell them you’ve turned it over to God, and you’re trusting Him to work it out for you.

Any extra prayer would be appreciated in this area. Just hard to rest and get out of the mind to sleep. Worst time is at night, and my thoughts are hard to take captive. It seems so easy, but so hard at the same time. I need to speak scriptures more and focus on Word more then other things. It definitely is a spirit that is hard to shake. I'll have to get headphones again to listen to praise music at night. It helps. I'll get like this off and on, but just a lot of warfare lately in my mind.
