Listen to Jesus and Live Carried by Father

Listen to Jesus and Live Carried by Father

The greatest success of your adult life is to change and become a well-loved child alive in joy! Let go of the gradual growth of cynicism, loss of wonder, and loss of joy that overcomes an adult life. Let go of the burdens of the world—you don’t have to carry them! If you find yourself reaching for your burdens the moment you wake up in the morning, it’s time for a change. Jesus is calling you to trade your burdens for his yoke—a yoke that is easy and light. Coming to Jesus as a child means you let him carry the heavy burdens. You let him make the decisions and take care of you. All you have to do is rest your weary soul, and live joyfully free in the love and care of your heavenly Father. God makes all things new. When you make the change and come to him, you are free to live in the glory of God’s grace and peace.
