Take A Moment

Can I share with you something that's been on my heart lately?  I have been listening to the album Endless Years by Will Reagan & The United Pursuit Band non-stop lately.  On top of that I even got the chance to go see them lead worship a few nights ago.  One song that has been echoing in my heart is called Take A Moment.

Take a moment to remember
Who god is and who i am
There you go lifting my load again

No longer am i held by
The yoke of this world
Come upon you the yoke of jesus
His yoke is easy and his burden is so light

Your love carries
Your love carries me
Out of valleys and the darkest places

I so often carry the weight of the world on my shoulders.  Don't we all try this at some point or another? Well this song hit me like a ton of bricks because it is referencing the verses Matthew 11:28-30 "Come to me, all who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you, and learn from me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.

We were never meant to carry the weight of the world on our shoulders.  I believe in a God who acts as a father, and whether you have a had a good father or not, we all know the role of a father.  He wants to take care of us as his sons & daughters and until you let him help you, there will forever be striving in your life.  I don't know about you, but when I find myself striving I'm not at my happiest.  Scripture says, "his yoke is easy and his burden is light."  Wow.  What a gift to be able to put on the yoke WITH Jesus instead of trying to carry it all by ourselves.  You have this opportunity.  Every. Single. Day.
