He called for him several more times; though the dog was well-trained, he just would not come. Finally the man got a stick and threw it out in the water. When the dog saw it, he swam over, got the stick, swam to shore, and laid it at his master’s feet.
It just may be that God has given you a burden because He can’t get your attention. It may be that God has given you a burden so that you might come and lay it at your Master’s feet. And if your heart is wounded and breaking, there’s a Savior who loves you.
Matthew 11:28-30 says, “Come unto Me, all ye that labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take My yoke upon you, and learn of Me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls. For My yoke is easy, and My burden is light.” Cast your burden upon the Lord.
