and the truth will make you free

Doesn't Jesus say, "My yoke is easy and My burden is light"? How can this be true, when the cross on my back feels like it weighs a ton and the road ahead of me is treacherously narrow and sometimes I'm not even sure I can see Him walking beside me? Or perhaps I should be asking the more startling question . . . is this thing I'm carrying even His?
