Leave it to Me

“Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. 30 For my yoke is easy and my burden is light” (Matthew 11:28-29 NIV).

In Iowa where I now live there are such a lot of trees. And now that the autumn season has arrived, the leaves are falling to the ground and leaving all the trees bear. One day the trees are full of leaves, and then the next day a heavy wind comes and blows all the leaves off the trees.

It’s just the way it is. The Lord has set seasons in place and when it is time for another season, there comes a change. For all yard owners there is work to be done, and that means to rake all the leaves from the ground. That’s hard work and it needs endurance and muscle power to clear the lawn from all the leaves.

But you know what? There is a much easier way for all that work that needs to be done! Do you know how? Wait for the wind to come and he will do the work for you! With his power he will blow those leaves off your lawn in just a moment. Do you get the picture? Do you see it for yourself? This is the lifestyle of a follower of Jesus Christ: Enjoy your life and let Him do the work that is too heavy for you.

Are there things in your life that are burdening you too much and wearing you down? Wait upon the LORD and hand these very things over to Him. Then trust and rest in Him. He will surely carry them for you. And then you can lean back and enjoy your life as a Christian. Give Him the right of way and your life will become easy and light!

Have a wonderfully blessed day!
