Yesterday’s sermon concerning getting rid of excess baggage really resonated with me. At this time in my life, I have many, many responsibilities and pressures, and it is comforting to know that I am able to be “yoked” to the Lord. Yoked is such an impactful metaphor, as I know that I have help carrying the load, and also help with the direction of my journey. I have difficulty giving up control in certain situations, and the challenge for me will be to pass on the burden, but I will make a concerted effort.
I also really liked the “I am” series, particularly the way it was segmented every week. Felt like the perfect amount of time spent exploring each “I am” statement.
