His Yoke Is Easy

March 5, 2013

Throughout my time at Ashland I’ve been involved all over campus. I’ve dedicated myself to my RA position, dance team, choir, business organizations, a mission trip, the Well, three internships and an on campus job as a climbing wall supervisor.

Because I took post-secondary classes in high school I’m getting through college in three years. I’m proud of my accomplishments, but the closer I get to graduation I can’t help but feel like I’m missed out on something or I’m not doing something right. I enjoy everything that I do, but I also find myself getting burnt out. I get burnt out because I’m constantly trying to impress people and show them that I can do everything I have to and done right. I feel awful when I disappoint people or don’t meet their expectations and let them down.

I’ve heard that being ambitious can be a dangerous thing. In a world where multitasking and self-ambitious are rewarded it’s hard to intentionally incorporate God in every aspect of your life. Trying to control everything and do everything I can to make me the most employable person has really weighed me down. I’ve been looking for jobs that will impress people, but I haven’t been taking into consideration God’s plan for me.

In Isaiah God says “my yoke is easy and my burden is light”. This is a really encouraging verse because I know if instead of relying on my own strength I can trust in God to carry my burdens. Rather than worrying about what people will say about me, my job, and my life after graduation I have to slow down and listen to what God has for me.

Whether I get a job at a well-known company right out of college or stay at home for a while I’m be content as long as I know it’s what God has in store. It is exhausting trying to live up to the expectations of those around you, but if you live your life through God and with God your life will be fulfilled.
