Traveling Light

A visit to another blogger recently brought his song to my mind.  It is one I really like but haven't heard in a while.



Traveling Light

(Duet With Joel Hanson) Lyrics by Sara Groves

Well I was doubling over the load on my shoulders
Was a weight I carried with me everyday
Crossing miles of frustrations and rivers a raging
Picking up stones I found along the way
I staggered and I stumbled down
Pathways of trouble
I was hauling those souvenirs of misery
And with each step taken my back was breaking
'Til I found the One who took it all from me

Down by the riverside
(Down by the riverside)
I laid my burdens down,
Now I'm traveling light
My spirit lifted high
(I found my freedom now)
I found my freedom now
And I'm traveling light

Through the darkest alleys and loneliest valleys
I was dragging those heavy chains of doubt and fear
Then with the one word spoken the locks were broken
Now He's leading me to places
Where there are no tears

Down by the riverside
(Down by the riverside)
I laid my burdens down,
Now I'm traveling light
My spirit lifted high
(I found my freedom now)
I found my freedom now
And I'm traveling light

Down by the riverside
I laid my burdens down,
Now I'm traveling light
My spirit lifted high
I found my freedom now
And I'm traveling light

Down by the riverside
(Down by the riverside)
I laid my burdens down,
Now I'm traveling light
My spirit lifted high
(I found my freedom now)
I found my freedom now
And I'm traveling light

Cast all your anxiety on him because he cares for you.
1 Peter 5:7

When I heard the Lord telling me to travel light, I guess He wasn't just talking about "things". I have to lay down unforgiveness and worry, too.

Love, love, love this song! One of my favorites and play it often in the car traveling.

"I was hauling those souvenirs of misery"... Don't we all pick those up and carry them along?

Thanks for the reminder to drop them at our Saviour's feet. I need that often.
