My burdens disappear when I shine the light of Spirit on them. I am free.
Some days worrisome thoughts or concerns may seem to be constant companions. I begin to feel lighter when I remember this simple exercise: I pause, turn within, and rest in Spirit. To be fully comfortable with my life, I may think I need to have complete control over every variable in it—family, friends, government, weather, and more. But my true freedom comes through Spirit. When I think and move and have my being through my spiritual nature, I am free. I am unlimited. I take a few deep breaths, and my concerns begin to fall away. My mind is restored to its natural, free state. My burdens disappear when I shine the light of Spirit on them.
Come to me, all you that are weary and are carrying heavy burdens, and I will give you rest.—Matthew 11:28
