Expectations are such a heavy load to carry, especially when under the weight of our own. What heavy expectations do you think you have to carry around? How are you discerning if it is the Lord’s expectations?
As I think on these things, my heart is screaming Matthew 11:28-30. Everyone carries heavy burdens, but how are we bringing those things to Jesus our Savior and Lord?
28 Then Jesus said, “Come to me, all of you who are weary and carry heavy burdens, and I will give you rest. 29 Take my yoke upon you. Let me teach you, because I am humble and gentle at heart, and you will find rest for your souls. 30 For my yoke is easy to bear, and the burden I give you is light.”Matthew 11:28-30, NLT
Not sure what burdens you are carrying. I am sure it is stressful and anxiety producing. Tonight, let us remember one thing: our burdens are not beyond the scope of the Lord’s control. So may we hand them over to our King, who is above all kings. Let us just pray about these hard things and reach out to another Christian brother or sister. There is strength in numbers.
