Maggie's not the only one who drags around unnecessary burdens, is she? We all have a tendency to hang on to hurts, embrace unforgiveness or bitterness, and drag it around for years. We worry about finances, health, the future, and haul those burdens around like a ball and chain from which there is no escape. How silly and unnecessary! Relief is available to us from the One who daily bears our burdens. He's carrying them anyway. Why would we try to carry them, too?
Blessed be the Lord, who daily bears our burden, The God who is our salvation. Selah. (Psalms 68:19 NASB)
This evening would be a good time to look at the burdens you carry. Are they necessary or do they belong in the capable hands of God?
Think about that for a while. Think about it, then place those burdens right where they belong.
