Doesn't it sometimes feel like we have the weight of the world on our shoulders. This tree is standing in our pasture. It is holding the entire weight of the fallen tree. Reminds me the verse in Matt. 11.
"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, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy and burden in light." Matt. 11:28-30.
Well I was doubling over the load on my shoulders
Was a weight I carried with me everyday
Crossing miles of frustrations and rivers a raging
Picking up stones I found along the way
I staggered and I stumbled down; Pathways of trouble
I was hauling those souvenirs of misery
And with each step taken my back was breaking
'Til I found the One who took it all from me
Down by the riverside (Down by the riverside)
I laid my burdens down, Now I'm traveling light
My spirit lifted high I found my freedom now
And I'm traveling light
