When The Burden is Too Heavy

Posted on: 7-15-112016


I saw this picture today and it struck me that many people feel exactly like this when they feel the weight of the world upon them.  They feel as if they are one wave away from drowning and they think that no one knows.  The truth is, however, there is Someone who knows every single detail of what they are going through.  There is Someone who knows every single detail of what you are going through.  And the reality is, that Someone knows even better than you what you’re going through.  God knows you better than you know yourself and He knows exactly what pressures you are feeling, the weight you are struggling to carry, and precisely how much you can take before completely succumbing to the stress of it all.  He knows what you are feeling and why you are feeling that way, even when you don’t know yourself why you are feeling the way you do.  And not only does He know all of this, He also knows exactly what to do to help you!  He knows how to cut the weights that are dragging you down.  He knows how to help you handle the stresses that come in this life.  He can provide you the strength and ability to carry the load that you have to carry. And not only will He provide you the strength and ability, He will also grab hold of that load and carry it Himself when needed.  He does not want the weight of this world dragging you under…this is not the life He died to give you.  He wants to lighten your load, bear your burden, and give you the rest you are desperate for.  All you have to do is ask Him for help and He will come running!

“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
