Cast your burdens

There are so many challenges around us, challenges in family life, in work, in the world around us. If you are not careful the challenges can become burdens and can weigh you down. If we don’t process these thigns and let them go they can move from burdens to becoming stress and from there to physical sickness.

In Matthew 11 Jesus says:

“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 ‭NIV‬‬

If we are willing, there is a transaction that can take place with our burdens for His, we come with our burdens and we trade them. Whatever we may be carrying, His burden is light. This is a reality. It is not some ethereal concept, it is a real transaction that you can make today.

Lord, forgive me for thinking that I can do it on my own. I come before you today and give you my burdens in exchange for yours, in Jesus name Amen.
