About The Traveler and the Heavy Burden
Others would have given up long ago with burdens such as yours, but you are here. If only you could see the distance you have traveled. Know this: your journey was not without purpose. You shall see.
The road is immense, stretching as far as the eye can see. Among the countless individuals making their way ahead, a lone woman slowly presses forward, carrying a load far too heavy to bear. With no one with whom to share her burden, she yearns to reach the end of her painful journey. Just when she is ready to give up, the miracles begin.
An act of kindness. A word of encouragement. A reminder of her worth. Buoyed by the assistance of compassionate strangers along the path, the woman finds the strength to continue her journey until she finds the One who can offer her greater peace and acceptance than she has ever dreamed possible.
For those seeking respite from the pains and heartache of life, this profound tale of one broken traveler’s journey is a powerful reminder of the love of the King of Kings, who is waiting with open arms to offer strength, love, and relief.
This little book is not like those I usually read. It’s a fable, a beautifully written fable. And the fable teaches you and me how to help those around us, at least a little bit. It also teaches that ultimately, the biggest help comes from the Savior, Jesus Christ. It’s the perfect little book to read in December!
I spent less than 10 minutes reading this book. But it touched me. It reminded me to look at others and what burdens they were carrying.
Did I mention that it’s illustrated? I love the pictures throughout the book as well.
Take the time to read this one. You won’t regret it!
I was given a copy of The Traveler and the Heavy Burden as a gift from the publisher. All opinions are my own.
