Does anyone need to CHILLAX with me?
Lord, today a new day stretches before me. Already I sense it pressing in around me. I feel pressures and burdens that are not my own-it makes me edgy…I feel like I can’t live up to it, keep up with it.
Lord, release me from these perceived burdens. Lighten my load. You tell me I can come to you with my burden and exchange it for your yoke, my heavy burdens traded for rest and teaching by you…You say your yoke is easy, your burden is light…
How is that, Lord?
I sense it, I feel it.
But then I find my mouth betrays my heart.
Lord, I need to re-boot!
I need a stay-cation!
I need your rest, your gentleness, your peace for today.
Let today bloom slowly as a flower-full of beauty, joy from above and heavenly aroma- a delight to all.
Yes, Lord, make it so!
