Matthew 11:28-30 GNB

“Come to me, all of you who are tired from carrying heavy loads, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke and put it on you, and learn from me, because I am gentle and humble in spirit; and you will find rest. For the yoke I will give you is easy, and the load I will put on you is light.”

Sometimes I get so stuck, trying to carry another person’s load or my own, pretending I am all alone in this universe and I have to solve all the world’s problems on my own. I usually do this until I collapse under the weight of the world on my shoulders, a yoke much too heavy to be carried by me. When I give it to Jesus and take on his, I feel much lighter and I can go on again, travelling light on the road trip of my life.

Happy travels!
