Lightening the Load

821a3724In life we can find ourselves in seasons that seem hopeless. We can lose sight of the light at the end of the tunnel but as the saying goes, if you are going through hell, keep going. We may feel like giving up but God never gives up on us. He has a future and a plan for our lives. No matter what we face we are one prayer away from help.

God created us to grow, develop, flourish and thrive. He chose us to bear His image and made us for relationship and mission. He loves us so much that when we became lost He sent Jesus to earth to save us not condemn us.

Love incarnate embraced us, healed us, and set us free. Jesus gave His life for ours as a ransom at the cross. Now through His finished work we can enter the great exchange. We can bring Jesus our sin, sorrow, trauma and fears and receive His righteousness, peace, joy and hope for the future.

No matter our problems in life, when we give them to Jesus He lightens our load. His yoke is easy and His burden is light. The more time we spend in prayer with the Altogether Lovely One, the more we will transform effortlessly from the inside out into who we are truly created to be. As we fix our eyes on Jesus, we will find that He changes our circumstances and leads us into our destiny and purpose.
