Freely and Lightly

““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.””

‭‭Matthew‬ ‭11‬:‭28‬-‭30‬ ‭MSG‬‬

When we find ourselves wrestling with life’s brokenness and hardships once again, we can come back to these verses in Matthew and remember that our God is One who will not lay anything heavy or ill fitting on us. He doesn’t turn us away when our emotions and struggles run immensely deep. He welcomes us with open arms and promises that even amidst the hardship, even amidst our failures, He can and will still give us a powerful freedom, an unexplainable lightness and His never fading, joyful presence.

With Love,
