Yesterday we transformed 2 rooms to accommodate me and my 2 precious children into my parents house. It's such a blessing to be in such a warm and comforting place during this difficult time.
As I read a familiar passage this morning, I must admit, I'm having a hard time with it. I know it should bring comfort. I promised myself and those around me that my blog would be a place of healing and honesty.
So here goes....
Matthew 11:29-30 (ESV)
"Come to Me, all who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take My yoke upon you, and learn from Me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For My yoke is easy, and my burden is light."
Here is what I can see:
I'm definitely laboring and am heavy laden with grief and the aftermath of John's passing.
I can understand how we are to take on His yoke.
I can understand how I'm going to learn from this experience.
I trust that God is gentle & lowly in heart.
I believe I can find rest in Him.
What I don't see quite yet...
How this yoke is easy & how this burden is light!
Yet still will I praise Him.
