I really enjoyed today practice. I mean I really really did. I feel like yoga is becoming something I do for myself because I want to instead of being a chore or something I need to check off my to-do list.
Lately I’ve been struggling with reading my Bible every day. Wouldn’t that be nice if it becomes something I do for myself because I want to, just like yoga? I’m sure with practice it’ll become like that. Maybe after yoga camp I should start Bible camp! 😉
Anyways, to today’s mantra. I release. Wow did that ever feel good during yoga! By releasing all of my stress, worry, and tension, I was able to fully enjoy my practice. Wouldn’t that be nice if we could always feel that way in life? But just as I can make reading my Bible something I want to do every day, we can be released of all our stress, worry, and tension every day!
Jesus said in Matthew 11:28, “Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest.”
We’ve got a God who is in control of everything and He’s telling us to come to Him and release our burdens! Isn’t that actually so amazing and relieving?! We can leave it all up to Him!
And by releasing and letting go of the things that are hindering our effectiveness, we’ll become more – well – more effective people who are able to carry out the plans that God has for our lives. And we’ll be able to find joy! I mean who doesn’t want to be joyful all the time?! It’s so possible!
I don’t know about you, but I’m ready to release.
