Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy and my burden is light.
Matthew 11:28-30

Lighten my load I just can’t seem to find any rest!

"Ask me" -GOD

Something so simple, yet so complicated in our world. Carrying all this load on our backs, we will stress and get frustrated, without asking for help. We are prideful and don’t even know it!

It’s been a LONG day! CHRISTMAS! Need I say any more?



Being Under Satan’s Yoke – Author Unknown


Long lines at a store, late night baking, wrapping presents, children fighting, traffic jam, indecision, conflicts, decisions…


To lighten load is to make it easier, or to get rid of heavy burdens, so that the load becomes easy to carry.

Imagine a donkey carrying loads and loads of bags, on left and right.

This is what we look like to GOD

We carry so much on our backs. We carry loads, and loads of problems, loads, and loads of struggles, loads and loads of stress, on left, and on the right. Like stubborn mules we carry so much on our backs, that we are physically, and emotionally TIRED!

No wonder WHY we feel so tired, and frustrated. No wonder we feel all stressed out, and burned out. We have so much junk on our backs, we are chasing so much in this world, and it’s sapping our strength, slowly day by day.

And if our own problems don’t chase us, tomorrow comes with it’s own set of troubles, tomorrow comes with it’s set of struggles.

What are we to do?


I will carry this for you! Your marriage? I will carry it for you. Your children? Give them to me. Your spouse? Your job, here give them to me. Come to me, all you heavy and burdened, and lay your troubles at my feet. My burden is light, and my yoke is not heavy. Come to me. I will give you REST! Rest is available at your request!

So many do not have rest, because they don’t ask for rest. So many are running on their own strength, chasing their own fantasy world, illusions, when strength is just within a reach.

By Definition “Rest” is emotional, mental calm, or continued source of strength without interruption.

“You have not because you ask not! “

If you ask for bread will your earthly father give you a stone, and if earthly father takes care of you, how much our heavenly father?

Lay your problems, struggles at his feet, allow the Savior to carry your struggles, you already have so much to take care of. Allow the Savior, the HERO to carry your struggles!


FATHER I lay my burdens at your feet, I lay my struggles, problems, and lay down to rest. I tried it on my own, but it's sapping my strength, come to my rescue, and hear my prayer LORD! Supply all my needs, and desires, rescue my soul! I surrender it all to you! Do what you will, in Jesus name!
