I'm blessed with a dad who helps me to understand my value. He demonstrates it to me in the smallest things.
For example, I play the cello - people know me for my big white cello case (which, in case you were wondering, is as heavy and as awkward as it looks!)
Whenever my dad is with me and I have my cello, he makes sure that I don't lift it. Even though he knows full well that I can manage the load and that at some point I will be carrying it, he insists that as long as he is with me, he is carrying my load.
I can't help but draw an analogy from this:
If my imperfect, earthly father doesn't want me struggling with a load that he feels he is more suitable to carry, how much more would my Heavenly Father?
I've come to learn that it actually honours and delights my earthly dad to allow him to do what he does - he would be offended if I didn't let him just be dad to me!
Sometimes I feel we need to put thought into how to be a child to a perfect Father - and the best example we have is Jesus. You just have to flick through the gospels to see multiple occasions of Him referring to God as His Dad.
God is always with us and promises to never leave us nor forsake us. He is always by our side, willing and wanting to carry our load and demonstrate our value to us.
See, our loads aren't necessarily only weights which we don't want to carry; they are potentially the weight associated with our gifting or purpose - like what my cello is for me.
There's an ease that comes with surrender; a simple acknowledgment that I alone cannot carry this weight and there's a God who wants to carry that which He has entrusted to me.
This enables me to fix my focus on walking as a beloved, royal and valued child and bringing Him glory through what I do.
"Come to Me, all you who labor and are heavy-laden and overburdened, and I will cause you to rest. [I will ease and relieve and refresh your souls.] Take My yoke upon you and learn of Me, for I am gentle (meek) and humble (lowly) in heart, and you will find rest (relief and ease and refreshment and recreation and blessed quiet) for your souls"
Matthew 11:28-29 AMPC
