Recently I was watching a ship at the Port, heavy, laden, unloading its cargo. As each load came off the ship, it would rise a bit.
I don’t care who you are, we all are carrying some kind of a load. Family problems, financial problems, health, things we have done that we now regret — you name it.
It seems to me that we need to claim the promise in Scripture that says: “Come unto me all you who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.” It also reminds me of the man carrying a heavy backpack given a ride in the back of a pickup. The driver noticed that the man remained standing, still with the backpack on.
It’s time to unload and know the joy of a more carry-free life. So for the rest of life’s trip, let’s unload the baggage and travel light.
