As the deer pants for the water brooks,
So pants my soul for You, O God.
Memorize: Psalm 103
Come to Me, all you 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.
It’s hard to wrap my mind around the fact that freedom is just that: being free, without the struggle of managing food. No obsessing about the what/when/how of diets and poundage. Freedom!
It’s time to take on the challenge of fully trusting God to make those changes in me that I have never been able to make on my own. He has something very precious as our reward for trusting Him: His easy yoke to replace these chains of bondage under which we live.
