Walk with Me
Jesus said “Are you tired? Worn out? Burned out on religion? Come to me. Get away with me and you’ll recover your life. I’ll show you how to take a real rest. Walk with me and work with me – watch how I do it. Learn the unforced rhythms of grace. I won’t lay anything heavy or ill-fitting on you. Keep company with me and you’ll learn to live freely and lightly.
This was one of the verses I clung to when I was heartbroken a few years ago. It spoke to me so loudly and so clearly. In my mind I saw a picture of me walking a path. On that path I met Jesus. He stood there and smiled, His arms open ready to embrace me. He then took all of my bags – the heavy weight I had been struggling to carry. He carried them with ease. As we started walking together down the windy path, He held out His hand for me to hold. He told me when to turn left or right. When the path became unstable, a bit rocky, He told me to lean on Him.
Jesus is standing on that exact same path for you. He’s there, ready to take your heavy bags. He’s ready to hold your hand. He’s ready to show you the way – He’ll never let you get lost.
Jesus wants you to walk the path freely, without worry or anxiety. He wants you to walk the path lightly, not being weighed down by things you were never meant to carry.
