Our family has carried a burden.
Isaiah 9:4a says, "for you (Jesus) will break the yoke of their slavery and lift the heavy burden from their shoulders. You will break the oppressor's rod."
Without realizing it-
We had been choosing to bear. it. all.
This burden has been lifted and is now At the Cross.
Psalm 55:22 "Cast your burden (which He has given us) on the Lord. . ."
We took it to the cross not to leave it there, or to cast it aside as if this burden never was,
but to give it back to the one who is our Helper and Defender.
The burden will rest on His shoulders ". . .the government will be upon His shoulder" (Isaiah 9:6).
He is carrying the "heavy end" of the cross for us now-
Our heavy burden has been lifted and we will move forward with it resting on His shoulders.
Our Companion, Helper, and Defender.
What about you? Jesus will carry the heavy end of your cross too.
"Cast your burden on the Lord."
