Jesus tells us His yoke is easy and His burden is light. I know that I often need to read this from Matthew’s Gospel (Mt 11:25-30). I too often feel the weight of the world on my shoulders and long for relief. When I sit with Jesus, He reminds me to step away and to follow His lead. He is meek and humble. He is always present in our weakness. He gives us the strength to carry whatever burden we must bear. The longer I journey the more I know that it is Jesus’ yoke and burden that I seek. I do not need to bear it alone.
