“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
Imagine the requests from us to God, then imagine how many issues have travelled back and forth from you and Him. It is not unlike tractor trailers that crowd the road to deliver cargo and then return home with the heavy load gone from the truck. Often, a truck returns to home base with something different than it started with, a new load to bring home.
We are kind of like trucks:) With today’s chaos and changes, we need Jesus more than ever. Current events and trials weigh us down, like trucks with heavy cargo. Prayer carries our cargo to Jesus. We send up all of our fears, disappointments, joys, questions, confessions, pleading and all other matters in prayers to Him. The highway between us and Jesus is well traveled. Jesus takes our load then sends back what we need, answers, instruction, guidance, light, discipline and His love, to name a few. We always come away with loads more than we gave. He is a giver.
Jesus lives to give us what we need. He died to give us what we need!
Dear Jesus, Please empty us of our burdens, or give us Your strength to bear them. We know that sometimes You might not take them away because it will help us to grow spiritually. If that is Your will, then we will glorify You in it. Thank you for being the giver that You are and the fact that you will be there whenever we need you, which is forever. We love you so much! Amen
