“Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest.

Yesterday, while at my gym, I accumulated several hand weights. One by one, exercise by exercise, they were easy enough to handle. However, when it was time to put them back I encountered a problem. As I began to walk with them tucked under my arms and in my hands, I realized I needed help as one of the weights began to slip. I knew I would ask the next person I passed to take some of the weights from me before they all fell to the floor.

Suddenly I realized that this is exactly what Jesus wants us to ask of Him. He wants us to hand our troubles to Him one by one before they become so heavy that we are feeling weighed down. The Lord extends an open invitation for us to bring our weighty burdensome troubles to him – so why do we delay asking the Lord “will you take this from me?”

Have a blessed unencumbered day.
