Do you ever wake up in the morning feeling feeling like all of life is hitting you in the face?
Some days, I wake up and just feel pounded with everything there is to do.
It seems like there is just NO WAY to cram everything into one 24 hour period, unless I never sleep.
Now, what I used to do is, I’d start hitting each task HARD, before I forgot to do it.
Then one day, as I was losing it, I saw a verse out on some surface in my house (I read the Bible a lot) and I read the verse that we all know, we’ve all heard of, but that is so hard to follow.
“My yoke is easy and my burden is light”
Man, I thought. I have really missed it. I know I have, Lord, because my yoke SURE isn’t easy, and my burden sure isn’t light.
So I actually sat down and read the whole thing…the part where He says come unto me and rest.
Now, I’ll tell you, I was a bit annoyed. I knew that if I stopped for a moment, I wouldn’t get it all done. But then, I did it. I took a quiet moment and just did …..
And in three brief moments, I knew instantly what my problem was. I hadn’t put the Lord first. That’s why everything wasn’t fitting.
Alright Lord, I’ll stop and pray and read my Bible. But as I began to do that, I felt like the Lord was encouraging me just to take a moment and write down everything that had been weighing on me. So, I did. And within 30 seconds, I could see at a glance, what my problem was.
I felt so strong in my spirit that i just needed to schedule a time to do each of these things.
Not just a to do list, but an actual start and end time.
And suddenly, that mountain of tasks was so…. nothing.
