Yoke in Hand.

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

This verse always reminds me that I am not walking alone.
Here is our yoke.
Jesus and me walking together. 
The load is lighter with Jesus. 
But here's the thing...
It's been 10 months. 
10 months of us walking together. 
My load is getting heavier.  
A load I continually hand over. 
And I'm tired. 

You can now imagine me with this yoke smashing it again and again against the ground. I want to be done. I've had a hissy fit. I've had a pity party. Jesus stands waiting, yoke in hand. "Get up, I've got this."  

I've laid in that spot for a week. 
Silent. 
The quieter I've been the more present he has been. 
Just waiting. 
Holding that yoke. 
Waiting for me to get back up. 

I got up this morning. 
He handed me our yoke. 
I put it on. 
"K, JC. I'll walk with you but the load is on you, I can't do it..."

I gave him my burden and He gave me rest. 

God is bigger than this and Jesus can fix-it.
