Heavy Burdens

As we enter 2013 and we are now settled back into Cameroon we were able to celebrate the New Year as a family. As we were driving down the road I saw two taxi’s beside each other and it reminded me that I could try and stuff as much as I could on my plate, but eventually I would break down just like the taxi is going to have a problem because it’s not designed to carry that much. Not that any Yaoundé taxi driver would believe that there is a limit to how much that their taxi can carry.

God has created us in the same way and has given us each a specific role to fill.  We don’t need to do it all or put it all in our trunk. I pray that this year we will all keep our focus on God and not allow the many things that try and fill up our time or our cars take over what God has planned for us.


“Then Jesus said, “Come to me, all of you who are weary and carry heavy burdens, and I will give you rest” (Matthew 11:28, NLT).

    What a powerful word for 2013. The main thing is to keep the main thing the main thing, right?

    Appreciate your analogy of the broken down taxi David. That verse is a great one for the New Year (and a great one for me personally). Been thinking and praying for you guys tonite. For some reason you guys and Wycliffe were on my mind.
