not to be burdened

I read this this morning.

"I have not burdened you with grain offerings nor wearied you with demands for incense."

Isaiah 43: 23 (partial)

Wow, that hit me.

Here's how it interpreted in my head:

I have not burdened you with expectations that you cannot meet.

I have not burdened you with the need for perfection.

You don't need to weary yourself with unending tasks to please me.

I do not want you to be weary.

I love you.

I love you. I love you!

I love you!!!

Be at rest. Rest in Me.

Let's pray for each other to really "get this" today.

Have a good one.

Thank you for that! Satan puts those thoughts into our head, not our Father!
