Too often we try and go it alone. We work, strive, and try to survive the daily grind when we have an Almighty God who quietly whispers, “Come. Give it to me, child.”
All we have to do is accept the invitation and intentionally lay our over-sized burdens at His feet. He desires to carry them for us. His shoulders are much broader than ours. Carrying us, close to His heart, is effortless.
So go ahead, beloved. Allow Him to be what He longs to be to you. Lay it down and allow Him to scoop you up.
Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, 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 souls. For my yoke is easy and my burden is light. – Matthew 11:28-30
