Molly’s Minute: God Will Help Carry Your Burden

March 3, 2020

So my husband, Vaughn, and I are newlyweds. And we recently moved into our first apartment.

Moving everything in, we worked as a team. But if we’re being honest, Vaughn was the one doing most of the work. We were moving tables and all this stuff upstairs, and I looked like I was helping, but it was really him bearing most of the weight.

And good thing, because I couldn’t carry all that weight on my own.

If you’re carrying a heavy burden today, know that you don’t have to bear the weight of it alone, either.

When you let Jesus walk side by side with you, when you let Him share the weight of your burden, He will help you. 

That’s what Jesus means in Matthew when he says, “…my yoke is easy and my burden is light.”

He’ll help you carry the burden on your shoulders. And just like me and Vaughn moving our furniture, you’ll find that He will take most of the weight.

So, will you let Him share the weight of your burden today?

Matthew 11:29-30 Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.
