Learning how to lay it down

Yesterday we ordered glasses for my oldest and youngest.

We went to the eye doctor specialist to be diligent. To make sure their eyes were healthy and strong because they will rely on their eyes for so much.

I wasn’t really worried about this appointment.

At the same time, I needed this one (I guess I was willing it to be and expected it) to be uneventful.

One that the doctor looks at me and says “everything is great! We have nothing to worry about”.

I guess I got part of it…

I am thankful that there are no major issues going on with their eyes.

However, they both need glasses too.

I had a “are you kidding me moment ???”

I told my friend the next day about the appointment. I told her I am thankful there is nothing major… But need glasses… Uhh


I jokingly (but telling the truth) said “you know that straw that brakes the camel’s back? I’m right there…”

Tonight I am battling with laying a heavy burden down at the feet of Jesus

And knowing what my responsibility is.


Children are a blessing.

They are a weighted blessing as there is responsibility with having children.

My children come with extra responsibility.

As I pray tonight I am asking God to teach me to teach me the lay down the burden but still be diligent with the responsibility that comes with being a mother to my children.

As I feel the weight of the demands on me this verse is whispering to my heart.

“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

I’m still working out what this looks like for me.

How do I lay this down and still be responsible with what I’ve been given?

I don’t have this all figured out.

I have so much to learn.

I invite you along as I seek hard after God and to learn with me.

Through it all tracing His fingerprints in this Story of His Grace that He writes in my life.


Father, I am coming to you today asking me to teach me how to walk in your promise and that when I come to you, you will give me rest. When I try to carry this on my own I quickly see that all this is too much for me. Thank you for a friend that reminds me that I don’t walk alone, you are with me every step. It is your strength that carries the weight of the responsibilities of this life.
