Being-at-home-with

Jesus' invitation to approach Him, and be relieved of the heavy load is a clever invitation which can easily be taken amiss or misinterpreted.  Jesus does not say that He would carry our load in our stead. He only assures us that it would not be heavy anymore. How does He intend to do that I suppose He knows best. But the fact is that each of us is to carry our own burden.  What then is Jesus' presence in our life? That the burden is no more a burden but a delight!

A simple analogy is a train journey. However long the journey may be, the company, if delightful, is always a memorable experience.  On the other hand, if the company is a headache, even a short journey is horrible.

It is ultimately a matter of trust and relationship. The more I trust Him, the more I am close to Him, the more merrier life is... in its entirety (may not be in its instancy).  It is about being-at-home-with Him!
