Properly Yoked

“Do not plow with your ox and your ass yoked together” Deuteronomy 22:10

Sounds like really good advice.

” Take my (Jesus) yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls.” Matthew 11:29

I have much to learn. I definetely appreciate rest.

“For my (Jesus) yoke is easy and my burden is light.” Matthew 11:30

Lord you want my burdens? You can have them. Let me unhook my ass and see what your ox can do. You’re an awesome God. Thank you. Amen.

  1. This prayer came into my inbox at exactly the right time. I had just gotten mad at myself over something that seemed huge at the moment but really wasn’t. I prayed the prayer, unhooked my ass, and was astounded to see how much better Jesus’ ox did. But I really needed the reminder right at that moment! Thank you.
