A missionary in the Philippines was driving in a large flat back truck. He saw a local farmer who he knew walking with a really heavy load tied to his back. The load was obviously heavy and weighing him down, so the missionary stopped and told the farmer to jump on board the truck. The man did and off they went.

After a while the missionary looked in his mirror and noticed that the farmer had still not taken the load of his back. Despite his new circumstances, the farmer was still carrying the same old load.

How like Jacob who prayed to God about his burden (his situation), and yet continued to carry it (try to sort it) himself.
