The Amazing Hat Juggler

Do you wear multiple hats? You know the mom hat, wife hat, best friend hat, along with the church volunteer hat, work hat, and the many other hats that appear in our closet. I saw a hilarious skit one time where the person was switching hats so fast that she never had the right hat on at the right time. I don’t know about you but I feel like that person a lot.

With a New Year approaching we can have a fresh start; new goals, new snow, a cleaner house, and a brand new calendar. This fresh start can be appealing for some and overwhelming for others. I seem to flip between be excited and overwhelmed all at the same time. J

Thankfully, Jesus had an answer for all of the hat juggling and overwhelming times. In Matthew 11: 28-30 it says “Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy and my burden is light.”

If you find yourself overwhelmed at starting this New Year or if you’re having a hard time knowing which hat to wear when, remember that Jesus has a much lighter burden and He can bear your heavy one for you.

May this next year be restful and peaceful for you and your family.
