“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” (Matthew 11:29).

It’s easy to be psyched out by the yoke of everyday life, burnout, and the sense that the very best of your time, energy, and resources is being spent on meaningless pursuits. Deliverance is to be found in another yoke; a yoke of service; a yoke that considers all tasks and pursuits as a service to Christ. It’s as we actively give ourselves to Him that we find rest for our souls (from the Greek “psyche”). Peace of mind is discovered when we start doing that for which we were designed.
