Have you ever been to your local fair and looked at your reflection in a funhouse mirror? If you have, you definitely noticed that you look… a little crazy! These mirrors are designed to distort the way that you see yourself, and it’s entertaining to see the funky shapes and forms your body can take on in the reflection.
To continue our February of Faith series, Joe White shares wisdom he gained from a difficult time in his life. He uses a powerful visual to illustrate the freedom that comes with giving our worries to Jesus.
In the Bible, we read:
“Come to Me, all who are weary and heavy-laden, 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.”
When hard seasons make it difficult to keep the faith, Jesus promises to carry our burdens and be with us along the way. He is faithful to us even when times are difficult!
