A Better Way to Live

“Come to Me, all you who labor and are heavy-laden and overburdened, and I will cause you to rest. [I will ease and relieve and refresh your souls.]Take My yoke upon you and learn of Me, for I am gentle (meek) and humble (lowly) in heart, and you will find rest (relief and ease and refreshment and recreation and blessed quiet) for your souls.” Matthew 11:28-29, Amplified

Early one morning I decided to make a quick run to the grocery store. I ran inside and picked up one of the baskets near the front entrance and began to shop. As I placed different items into the basket, I began to notice it getting heavier. I then picked up a large gallon of milk and glanced at the basket, wondering, “How am I going to carry this heavy load?” Just as I was about to figure out a way, a gentleman stopped me. He said, “You know ma’am, you don’t have to carry that basket like that.” I didn’t understand what he was saying until he walked over, pulled a lever from the side of my basket and suddenly transformed it into something that rolled on the floor! I laughed and thanked him for showing me a better way.

So many of us are walking through life carrying heavy loads God never intended for us to take on. Just when we figure out how to carry one burden, we add another one on top of it. We think to ourselves, “Lord, how am I going to bear all of these heavy loads?” Whatever it may be, God will do for you, through Christ, the same thing that nice gentleman did for me in that grocery store—He will show you a better way. Let Him lift every burden that is weighing you down and give you His wisdom and instructions that are light. Allow Jesus the opportunity to step in, transform your life and show you a better way to live!

Prayer: Father God, thank You for speaking to me. Help me. So many things are weighing on my heart and mind. Relieve me of this heavy load I’ve been carrying. Transform my life and show me a better way to live. In Jesus Name, Amen.

  4. It is a known fact that we carry loads that are heavy, and God went to the cross so that He can carry all our sins & grief. God is our refuge & a present help in times of trouble. We must lay those burdens at Jesus feet and rest. He wants to help us, if we allow Him to. Decide today to let go & let God. When we do that, we can have assured peace. This was a right on time devotion! Burdens, Be still.
