Ever feel like you have a monkey on your
Maybe you get so used to thinking a
certain way, that you don't even realize
that you are carrying an unwanted burden. . .
Well, what does that saying even mean?
This is what it means:
"A monkey on your back is anything at all
that you find to be a constant burden. You
have to finish your BA degree for advancement
at work, you are married and have a small
child. Having to get that degree is "a monkey
on your back". It usually doesn't refer to
actual physical burdens."
Here's what the Bible has to say about
"Come to Me, all you who labor and are heavy
laden, and I will give you rest. "Take My yoke
upon you and learn from Me, for I am gentle
and lowly in heart, and you will find rest
for your souls. "For My yoke is easy and My
burden is light." Matthew 11:28-30
So I can either carry my monkey around
or let him down and play with him :)
