Mathew chapter 11 says “Come to me all who are weary and burdened, I will give you rest. Take up my yoke and learn from me, because 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.” This is something that I struggle with every single day. When the burdens of life come my way, my first instinct is to pick it up and carry it on my shoulders. But more burdens come, and I continue to place them on my shoulders. This continues until the weight of these burdens weighs me down to the point I can barely walk. Because I am walking in my own strength, and not by the strength of the one who is stronger than me. Some of the hardest moments of my life are when I try to do everything on my own. Because I didn’t take up His yoke. It wasn’t his burden, I was trying to carry it all on my own. Don’t carry your burdens one more day alone. Tomorrow will be harder than today if you try to carry them on your own.
