Have you been restless, stressed, or simply overwhelmed by the clutter and chaos of everyday life? Living in such hectic and tension-filled times, we can find ourselves uneasy, weighed down, and weary - physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually. Despite our desperate need to hit pause, it just seems like life keeps moving, the world keeps turning, and time keeps ticking. 40 DAYS LIGHTER is a daily invitation to set aside the clutter, distractions and burdens we've carried for so long, and enter the rest that only Christ can give. It is a call to lighter living, laying down the cares that make us weary, and heeding his words: "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."
