In this life, we are faced with many trials and burdens that come our way. Luckily we have someone on our side. His name is Jesus Christ. He tells us a few times in the scriptures that his "yoke is easy and [his] burden is light." The Lord can help us through anything and everything. It says in Alma 7:11-12, "And he shall go forth, suffering pains and afflictions and temptations of every kind; and this that the word might be fulfilled which saith he will take upon him the pains and the sicknesses of his people.
And he will take upon him death, that he may loose the bands of death which bind his people; and he will take upon him their infirmities, that his bowels may be filled with mercy, according to the flesh, that he may know according to the flesh how to succor his people according to their infirmities." This encompases all that we will ever go through. The Lord has bore our burdens before we ever will and so for that cause we can rely on him. The blessings that we can get from turning to the Lord are amazing. The Lord can do so many great and amazing things for us. There is a video that I will post the link for on here. It does a great job of helping us deal with burdens.
