The Easiest Wooden Tool...you wouldn't believe it.


Today, as I sat there in the congregation, I heard those words tumble out of his mouth and I cringed in awe as he talked about what I call, 'the easiest wooden tool.' When you think about tools, they are usually big huge things that require the strength of strong buff masculine muscles (preferably from a 6-pack muscular body) to operate. At least that's what comes into my mind immediately I hear, "tool." Yeah, call me 'lazy,' but its true! But today, I found the easiest tool that can be operated by anyone...weak or strong, masculine or feminine, white or black...or even polka dot. Whichever way you come...its for one and its for all...

...it's the yoke of Jesus...for while He was on earth, He made an alter call and said...

"Take My yoke upon you and learn from Me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For My yoke is easy and My burden is light.”

Matthew 11:29-30

Dwell on this...you may think it's a hard thing to want to LOVE God so much that it will make you leave all your desires behind...that you'll leave everything you have and earn, just to know a God who is invisible. You may think it's foolish to live your well-preserved world to join the crowd of heavenly junkies who act mad and act as if they have lost their minds claiming they've found their most prized possession.

But all you need is this EASY wooden tool...all you need is to take the tool...take the yoke...for when you've done so, you'll find rest...LET GO and LET GOD! How abt YOU try to act 'crazy' too. What's up with the hulla balloo? don't you even want to try finding out? How easy is His yoke? You wouldn't know...

**Inspired to tell you, after hearing the message of His yoke**

@ funmi...tell me abourrrit...

@ the life of a stranger...I just loved the way u rephrased everything...that was just the direct summary of the whole post (*wink*)...

@ curvyice...if I didn't have to sit right still on this seat, I would have jumped in the air...(I love confirmations, I even have a post talking abt "confirmation" from God)...theres an indescribable feeling u get when u know God is confirming somn through different mediums...

@ nilla...he he....u know I just got done with two major exams last night, u shd have seen the way I slept off immediately I jumped on my cozy bed...didn't get up till this morning...but I can tell u my "sleeping" day went well...

@ vera...same here...I pray I'm able to use it...if it's an "easy yoke," then why not? I think people just think it's some sort of hard thing to do...

------------cheers guys---------
Have a lovely day today
*wink*
