Dog tired?

What are the things that give you energy, strength and make you want to live another day?

Are you feeling worn out and dog tired? Maybe it is time to start cutting out the things in your life that drain, strain or distract from your calling and purpose and start adding in and continuing things that help you gain, maintain or expand your calling and purpose.

Certainly, there is no guarantee of comfort in a calling and this is not to say hard work is bad or there is no gain in pain. But maybe, just maybe, we are overextending ourselves in our go, go, go culture!
Jesus reminds us that his yoke is easy. Easy? Really, Jesus? Easy? Yes, easy.

We may be physically and mentally drained but when it’s his yoke, he promises to carry the load and the burden or to give us the strength we need to prevail.  As we trust him to deliver, he renews our strength and gives us rest.

Carrying a heavy yoke? Make sure you aren’t trying to do Jesus’ job. The portion of the yoke he has given us to carry is to trust him for the outcomes he has called us to fulfill.

Rest in him. When you are drained and strained come to him. When you are weary and heavy laden he will give you rest, renew your mind and strength and encourage you in the calling he has laid before you, not on you.

I few years back I had the opportunity to produce a TV program with recording artist Jami Smith. Here is one of her songs that really speaks to the issue. Enjoy!
