My Burden is Light

Day 153  June 3, 2013

 “Come to me, all you that are weary and are carrying heavy burdens, 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

“Make something light seem heavy.”  from 365 A Daily Creativity Journal by Noah Scalin

“You’re trying to carry everything in your life by yourself. And you are falling under the weight of it but that was never God’s intention. He doesn’t want you to carry it yourself. You can’t do it, only God can do that. And that’s what he says, He says: “I never meant for you to go through this by yourself. I wanna go through it with you. I wanna carry it for you.”     ― Lacey Mosley

“Ah, mon cher, for anyone who is alone, without God and without a master, the weight of days is dreadful.”  -Albert Camus 

“One word frees us of all the weight and pain in life. That word is love.”  -Sophocles
