Gentle guidance

Take my yoke upon you. Let me teach you, because I am humble and gentle at heart, and you will find rest for your souls. Matt. 11:29

When the hand guiding the plow is gentle in it’s confident guidance the creatures in the yoke are gentled as well. Wearing Christ’s yoke not only provides direction but also hope and joy and trust. As we allow Christ to direct us in ways that are purposeful and productive we do indeed find a soul rest even when we are very busy.

Lord, thank you for your gentle guidance.
