My Night-Guard is Easy and My Burden is Light

Come unto me, all you that labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and you shall find rest unto your souls. For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light. Matthew 11:28-30 KJV

Hi everyone, Matt here.

I'm giving Lee the day off, or at least I'll hide in the den and type while she goes shopping.  I recently got a night-guard from my dentist to prevent grinding my teeth while I sleep.  After the first fitting he said it might cause me problems to start and to come back in a week.  Sure enough, after a week I was ready to chuck it.  I had muscle aches in my jaw from clenching my teeth at night.

The problem...It didn't yet fit properly and had a high spot that caused my jaws to tense.  He ground it down and now if fits perfectly.  My jaw doesn't hurt and I'm sleeping better.

I know it is a bit of a stretch, but I think that's how God's yoke is supposed to fit.  Perfectly so it allows you to rest.

That's it...nothing too profound...now go play with your new toys.

Blessings,

Matt

Thanks for the new perspective on one of my favorite verses ever! I always say that if the burden is too heavy, it ain't from Jesus...Surely, the kind He gives will fit you personally.
