Burden

#fmf
When I first think of the word Burden, I immediately go to things in life that I have had to carry.  Things/experiences that have literally weighed me down and I could not carry alone. These are things that we need others to help us with.   Or they are experiences that others have placed on us.
But then I thought of our world today.  The days of blame and not taking responsibility.  The days of no respect for authority.
Days when we as God’s children and those who don’t know Him need to live by this verse.

Hebrews 13:17

Have confidence in your leaders and submit to their authority, because they keep watch over you as those who must give an account. Do this so that their work will be a joy, not a burden, for that would be of no benefit to you.
Was it so different in Jesus’s days?  He carried all the burden of sin to the cross for us.
And Jesus says:

Matthew 11:30 

For my yoke is easy and my burden is light.”

I now have come to understand that if I would only release my burdens to HIM, allow Him to take them, I find refreshment, my burdens are easier to carry.

So what if, the world, the ones who want to play the blame game.  The ones who feel their burdens are too heavy to carry anymore so they “sin”, in hopes to reduce the load.  What if we all looked to Jesus instead of others.

What if?

Thank You Lord for carrying my burdens.  Amen!
