Is Your Baggage too Heavy?

 Come to Me, all you who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take My yoke upon you and learn from Me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For My yoke is easy and My burden is light." (Mathew 11:28-30, NKJV)

Picture being in an airport trying to carry your bags along with your purse and other items. Now, picture getting to the point of being so exhausted that you just drop everything in your arms to the ground. That's how we feel spiritually at times. We try to carry the "bags" of our lives and get exhausted doing it. We get exhaused, because they weren't meant for us to carry alone. The verse tells us that His yoke is easy and His burden is light. Ladies, give up your bags. Lay them down at His feet.
Father, give us the strength to lay our baggage down at Your feet. Help us to not pick it back up again. In Jesus name, Amen.


  1. Great post, Jamie! I love this sentence: "Ladies, give up your bags." Amen! Thanks for sharing.

  2. I'm with Cathy - I love that line too :) Why do we struggle with this so much? The Lord must shake His head at us as we stubbornly continue to carry the things He's waiting to lift from us. Thanks for the great reminder. Love you!

  3. Love this Jamie...give up your baggage...its so much easier than trying to carry it alone.
