"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.”
I heard this from God so clearly after my morning workout: I never designed you to carry heavy burdens (in this case weight)
For a long time quite a few people have questioned me when I work out with “what you trying to lose” because naturally my body frame is slender, so nobody sees when I start carrying extra “weight” that’s just too HEAVY for my body type
although I feel it, and my clothes do too lol.
It’s NOT always obvious to others, also the same when we carry extra weight/burdens in life that God never intended for us to carry. Other people may or may not see it, but it shows up and weigh us down physically, emotionally/mentally, etc.
Just like being over weight in the natural, it makes you wonder how much of the weights you carry doesn’t belong to you.
If it’s weighing you down, and it’s too heavy, it probably doesn’t belong to you! Lose the weight/burden

It's been 2 years my friend since I last talked to you, the day you walked out I wasn't sure what I'd do.
It was you and me for so very long, through thick and thin, it had to end for the new could finally begin.
I leaned on you too much I knew your heart was full of fear, you keep me locked in chains but you said you were always near.
You taught me how to eat until I could no longer feel, but in not feeling I was missing all the parts He wanted to heal.
The day final came, we could no longer be friends, I said I will always love you, but I had to make a drastic move for the new to burst through.
You see I was sick, from the inside out, the truth I had to tell, the new me stuck inside of you I finally had to defend.
That morning came, white gown, cold room all around. I said good night, you said good bye, our eyes locked one finally time.
You rose up off the table as I begin to count to 10, you looked back at me, and said, you'll never need me to live for you've found you're stronger than you've ever been.
You looked at me as you walked out the room and your last word was... LIVE!
You are always giving yourself something"
