Freely and Lightly
As I write each Gathered Under Grace devotional, my hope and my prayer is to make a positive impact on lives. Gathered Under Grace is devoted to helping you, me, the proverbial US, learn how to thrive where we are, to find our true selves and our calling for God in a way that makes our hearts sing and our joy abundant. Speaking to the everyday; life, family, conflict, love and ... and all the other everyday struggles that each of us has in our lives.
Matthew 11: 29-30 MSG ”Walk with me and work with me—watch how I do it. Learn the unforced rhythms of grace. I won’t lay anything heavy or ill-fitting on you. Keep company with me and you’ll learn to live freely and lightly.”
Living freely and lightly is a goal we should all strive for in our lives. It is a great way to live. Yes, there will still be bad days ... days where we have to walk through things that will be tough and some that will be down right hard. Yes, we will still have to experience loss, frustration and all the other emotions and events that make up life, but ... and that’s a great big BUT, when we walk with Jesus all those things are so much easier to handle. When we are walking with Jesus, He helps us, guides us and sees us through the tough times and teaches us how to really enjoy the good times. Walking with and talking to Jesus is a way of life that makes our lives better ... free and full of light ... and even better than that, it brings with it life everlasting.
