Then I got my chance, Carol got up to go to the bathroom and I ran over and jumped into bed with my mom. “Oh yes” I thought “Here I could easily get some sleep” But it wasn’t long before Carol was back and I had to get back into bed between my dad and my little brother.
I loved our family vacations and the Grand Canyon was beautiful that day, but tonight just wasn’t going how I would have liked it to go. I love my dad and brother but I wasn’t used to all of the snoring, so I lay awake much of the night.
At that age, about 9, I had small problems, my yoke was a light one. As the years went by, my problems got bigger. I would love to have the innocence and simplicity of childhood again, but things change. As life becomes more difficult, God has given us a way to deal with life and all of it’s heavy burdens, so that we might get the rest that we need, spiritual rest and physical rest.
In Matthew 11:28, Jesus says, “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.” (NIV)
