Light as a Feather

From my nouveau devo, Take Flight by Robin Jones Gunn & Cindy Hannan.

Black Winged Guilt:

The enemy did in my heart the same thing he has done since the beginning of time: He broke in, stole and destroyed. Christ, who is my advocate with the Father, defended me…Jesus told my accusers to leave me alone.

“Are you tired?
Worn out?
Burned out on religion?
Come to me.
Get away with me and you’ll recover your life.
I’ll show you how to take a real rest.
Walk with me and work with me—watch how I do it.
Learn the unforced rhythms of grace.
I won’t lay anything heavy or ill-fitting on you.
Keep company with me and you’ll learn to live freely and lightly.”
Matthew 11:28-30 MSG

Go back and read it again. A sentence at a time. *sigh* Light as a feather. That’s how Jesus wants us to be.
