Planting Seeds of Faith in God’s Garden…
The Hitchhiker …
““Come to me, all of you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. Take up my yoke and learn from me, because I am lowly 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)
Once upon a time a man was hitchhiking on a dusty road headed toward a big city and on his back he carried all his worldly possessions. As he walked he was suddenly passed by a man in a pickup truck, after he passed the hitchhiker he looked into his mirror in time to see the man fall to the ground because of his heavy load.
The truck driver stopped backed up got out of his truck helped the man to he feet and said, “Sit on the back of my truck and I’ll give you a ride into town.” The hitchhiker smiled and sat down facing the backwards.
Several minutes later, the driver looked in the mirror and saw the man leaning over as if he were going to fall out. The hitchhiker still had his heavy backpack on. The driver stopped the truck walked to the back and suggested to the man it would be better if he would take off the pack and lay it in the back of the truck.
“I can’t do that,” the man replied, “I’ve already added to much weight to your truck and with the cost of gas I don’t want to be any more of a burden than I already am.”
If you’ve asked Jesus to forgive you of your sins or lighten your burden then don’t be like the hitchhiker and continue to let them burden you. If he had not wanted to take them from you, he would have stayed in heaven.
Got Burdens? Give them to Jesus He knows what to do with them!
Jesus… Don’t face the future without Him!
Grace and PEACE,
