Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened…you will find rest for your souls..my burden is light. ~Matthew 11.28-29
A load of mis-thinkings…thinking too much about myself…or not thinking enough about myself.
Pride versus disgust.
Pride makes me worry. It makes me selfish, and judgmental. Such a heavy load for poor me, when others get in my way, disrespect me, not notice my greatness, not do what I want, not get what I want, what I deserve. A load of thinking highly of ME.
Pride circles around to disgust in what pride has created in my life. Feeling unworthy, never good enough. A load of guilt from past mistakes, from lingering consequences. A load of not thinking highly of ME at all.
Either way, the load gets pretty heavy.
I have two ways out…and only two (and, I have tried a ton of others that didn’t unload anything but my wallet!).
First, Prayer. God never intended for me to carry anything heavier than faith in him.
He created my brain and soul for so much more than to wallow in a load of pain.
And Movement. Preferably into God’s creation. Moving the load off my brain means moving my load outta the chair. Literally.
Load-release perfection, for me – praying while walking in the woods – whoop-whoop. Bonus time!
What about you? How do you get rid of the stuff that so easily ensnares you, that puts a load on your head, on your heart?
