yoke

Come to me all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest.  Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls.  For my yoke is easy and my burden is light. ~Matthew 11:28-30


"The great temptation is to try and make it happen, whatever it is.  That's where we need to step out of our yoke and step into Jesus' yoke and let him carry the burden.  We feel like we have to make it happen, and that's what we have to lay down.  We don't make it happen.  We turn it loose.  Whatever we are doing for the Lord, we let him carry through with it." ~Dallas Willard (Living in Christ's Presence)
