Jesus says ” Take my yoke upon you and learn from me. My yoke is easy and my burden is light.” (Matthew 11:29-30)
You do not need to worry about the weight of the Lords yoke because “the joy of the Lord is your strength.”(Nehemiah 8:10) For any persecution you receive from other humans is meaningless. The Lord is the only one you need to please. Humans can be fickle and fleeting in life. Jesus is the way that brings eternal life. My plan to live fully for 100 years is nothing compared to the eternity I plan to live.
If you are a nonbeliever I challenge you to be open minded and listen to K-love music for 30 days. Nothing but K-love and then read “A Purpose Driven Life” and the Bible (Proverbs is the place to start) daily. If your way has not been working then humbly and quietly try it this way. You don’t have to tell anyone. God is the only one that will know and smile upon you. But I will tell you this; if you do make this effort the peace and love will shine through you.
