“I feel like I am the cause of all of this, and I don’t like it. I don’t want to be a burden to you.”
Someone spoke those very words to me just yesterday. I stopped for a moment because there have been times, I’m sure, in all of our lives when we’ve said or thought similar things.
Typically a heavy load.
That’s the definition.
Are you carrying a heavy load, yourself, right this minute? Do you feel like you have this large suitcase full of burdens that you carry around with you every where; “baggage,” if you will. It really is hard carrying all of that around. It weighs so heavily on our shoulders, and we just want relief.
Someone, anyone, take this burden from me … relieve the burden on our hearts and minds.
And I know just the One that will do this; JESUS CHRIST.
If you pray and ask, God will reach down His Mighty Hand and calm the storms in your life. It may not be with immediate relief, but you will be strengthened while the storms in your life are weakening. He will make sure you are protected and safe, and He will lift the burdens you feel in your life.
Turn your burdens over to the LORD,
and he will take care of you.
He will never let the righteous person stumble.
