He Lifted my Burden

There has been a lot for me to be stressed about with the move coming up and one of them is leaving my young women. I love them so much and am very emotionally attached to them. It is hard to leave them in the care of another and I don't want to leave the ward feeling like I am abandoning them. Today the Lord lifted this burden. I can stop worrying about my young women and to be excited for them instead. I had the opportunity to meet with my "replacement" and I was touched by her strong testimony and saw the love she already has for these young women. I know they will be very blessed to have her as their leader. She has gifts and talents to share with them that will strengthen them in different ways then I could. I knew that the Lord would bless these girls lives and that I would be able to let go once I moved but to have this burden lifted today, weeks before I leave, is a huge blessing. Now as I move forward with the other plans I am not carrying this additional stress. I was reminded of a scripture in Matthew "Come unto me all ye 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 hear and ye shall find rest unto your souls for my yoke is easy and my burden is light." I know this is true.
