My Burden is Light

I meant to check my email and order vitamins but my browser froze. I cleaned the computer and scanned for viruses. I searched for the daily sheets I thought I printed while waiting. I didn’t find them.

I saw a form I needed to copy. The printer jammed and only printed 3/4 of the page. By the time I got that copy, the backup had been finished for several minutes.

I ordered what I needed and decided to upload my steps from my tracking app. It worked in December but not today! My birthdate was wrong on the app. It wouldn’t let me change it.

I opened the chat to see if they could help. I was instructed to respond in less than 2 minutes. The person I was chatting with responded after several minutes each time. She told me everything I already knew.

The phone rang, the washer stopped, and I was notified that they found our landline number on the dark web. It was our son who used that number for a few decades. I let the answering machine take the call and threw the laundry in the dryer.

I was feeling stressed. It was 11:45 a.m. and I hadn’t cracked open my Bible.

I have to stop multitasking. It’s a bad habit. When I concentrate on one thing at a time, I have peace.

That’s how Jesus intended for me to work. He knows I get side-tracked constantly and I tend to procrastinate. I try to do too many small things that turn into big time-consuming things.

Matthew 11:30, “For my yoke is easy and my burden is light.”

Christian Standard Bible

A Proverb

Proverb 8:5, “Listen to me and you will be prudent and wise. For even the foolish and feeble can receive an understanding heart that will change your inner being.”

The Passion Translation

“Increasing our pace has decreased our peace.”
