Horses instinctively puff out their bellies when getting saddled.

 

“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 light.”  Matthew 11:29-30. NKJV

Broken Yokes

“I have broken the bands of your yoke and made you walk upright.” Leviticus 26:13

We don’t always realize how burdened we are until someone lightens our load.

Thank You, Jesus, for Your yoke is easy and Your burden is light. (Matthew 11:30) And here is a simple poem . . .

Weight Exchange

Caught up in my own world
was simply crushing me,
bound, gagged and forced to run
when I couldn’t even see

til You broke my bonds of sin
and set me walking free
to carry a heart full of praise,
keeping my steps light and easy.

Yoke of 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.”  Matthew 11:29

Jesus calls all those who are already laboring and heavy laden to come take His yoke.  I hear myself start to whine . . .”But I’m tiiiirrrreeeedddd.”

We thank You that there’s a rest for our souls in laboring for You, Jesus, that nothing can disturb.  And here’s a simple poem . . .

No Retirement Plans

My mind may spin logistical
my body soon complain
but there’s a rest within my soul
each time I lift Your name.

Oh, I may need to sleep deep
and take a break now and then
but I never want to remove the yoke
from this lowly- hearted Son of Man.
