Whether in the classroom or online, I try to give directions that will help my students. I want the experience of learning to be meaningful and enjoyable. In my mind, at least, my plans are to make learning easier for my students, but I need them to listen to and trust me!
Jesus also has a plan to make our lives easier. He doesn't want us to be burdened with a heavy yoke. He doesn't want us to live our lives weighed down by sin. However, to be free from the burdens of sin, we need to listen to Jesus! We need to allow Him to take our heavy burden in exchange for His light one and we need to learn from Him. When we accept the redemption that is provided through the sacrifice of Jesus, we will find that life is easier than carrying our sin on our own!
Allow Jesus to make your life easier by trading your heavy yoke for His light one!
Thank You for taking my heavy burdens. Help me to let go of what is weighing me down and to accept all that Jesus has to offer. Through Him I pray, amen.
