Slow down

Something I forget as I time and time again strive at my pace – of stress filled hyperactivity- to slow down and work at Jesus’ pace:

Matthew 11:28-29 International Standard Version

28 “Come to me, all of you who are weary and loaded down with burdens, and I will give you rest. 29 Place my yoke on you and learn from me, because I am gentle and humble,[a]and you will find rest for your souls,[b]

I’ve burnt myself out the pass week – no it’s been months – working myself into a frenzy. Imposing high expectations upon myself.

The truth is if I’m feeling overwhelmed and burdened, then I’m not in step with Jesus. I’m working on my own, and have left Jesus behind.

It’s so easy to fall into this hectic mayhem and let myself become befuddled – so I give my yoke to you Jesus. Take this burden off me. Let me work within your Grace and at your pace.


Have the faith within to know that no matter how crazy, desperate and hectic the situation is, whether it is work related, personal or the family, I must trust that they hand of Jesus in my life will clear a path for me. This can be clearing the mental pathway to think and see clearer, or moving circumstances around us and others – this is His unseen hand at work.
