My Burden

The night is dark and cold winds blow as I plod down the pathway.  Hunched over, I can barely carry the weight of my load…so very weary…so very much alone.  I clutch at my burden, unwilling to release it out of my control, yet longing for help in bearing it.  I have carried it alone so long, so very long.  I finally cry out in desperation “please help me!” and He answers me “Come unto Me all who are weary and heavy laden 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 soul.  For my yoke is easy and my burden is light.”  Matthew 11:28-30.  Gently and lovingly he reaches down and takes my burden on Himself and lays His yoke in it’s place.  Such freedom!  Such peace!  Such rest!  Amen.
