Jesus frees us from all our burdens, no matter how big or small. Things in this life that seem to have such a stronghold are insignificant in comparison to the purpose He has for each of us. Matthew 11:28-30 says, 28 Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. 29 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. 30 For my yoke is easy and my burden is light. The “rest” that Jesus promises is love, healing and peace, but not the labor. The existence of a relationship with God changes a difficult life into one of spiritual fulfillment and purpose, not necessarily easy.
