Burdened?

Cast thy burden upon the Lord , and he shall sustain thee: he shall never suffer the righteous to be moved.  Psalms 55:22 KJV

Transfer the weight.  Jesus’ burden is light.

Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.   Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls.   For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.  Matthew 11:28‭-‬30 KJV

It’s so much easier when you don’t have to lift something by yourself. Carrying a heavy or ungainly thing is so much easier when you have help.

Jesus uses the familiar picture of oxen or horses being yoked together to pull a load. He says, “I’m yoked together with you. Let Me do the heavy pulling and lifting.”

Whatever your “yoke” or “burden,” let Him have it.

Humble yourselves therefore under the mighty hand of God, that he may exalt you in due time:  Casting all your care upon him; for he careth for you.  1 Peter 5:6‭-‬7 KJV
