Kate said, “BURDEN.”
And I would venture every single faith blogger used Jesus’ words, “My yoke is easy and my BURDEN is light.”
Perfect scripture for this word prompt.
Perfect scripture for living in today’s world.
For the day to day.
For doing the next thing.
Because in case you haven’t noticed? Life is BURDENsom, y’all. And, that statement has NOTHING to do with politics or economics. Life is filled with burdens. I don’t care who you are. Where you are. What you are.
There are BURDENS.
We are on a phenomenal road trip. We have seen sights we have never seen. We have felt carefree and light. And, then the text came. An altercation.
A BURDEN to take to the throne of my Burden-bearer.
JESUS, the BURDEN-bearer.
HOLY SPIRIT, the one who can comfort the BURDENed.
Our family situation has changed…again. Fear wants to seep in but I cannot, I will not, I refuse to allow it. My BURDEN has been laid at the feet of my BURDEN-bearer, the One whose yoke is easy — and y’all? I’d rather be yoked to HIM than any one or anything else. No politician can help with soul work.
Only the BURDEN-bearer. His name is Jesus.
DO YOU KNOW HIM?
