The "yoke", is a point of view, a belief, a perception. It might be heavy, or not so heavy, or not heavy at all...
The comforter lifts it all up and makes it do-able, whatever it is...

We all can be tempted by fear. But what is fear really?

We need move up higher.
I am grateful for the lift!
"Thou wilt shew me the path of life: in thy presence is fulness of joy" Ps 16:11
What is my purpose? What is my life about?
What is my path?

"Hear my cry, O God; attend unto my prayer.From the end of the earth will I cry unto thee, when my heart is overwhelmed: lead me to the rock that is higher than I. " Ps 61:1,2
Being overwhelmed is a common feeling of putting ourselves down and resist good.
"But how can I resist good?- I ask - I want good, I am good..."

God is never overwhelmed.
So I may go to God, and ask to take it from me.
I am grateful it is just a suggestion...
