The other night I was praying. I was asking God to help me unload ALL of my burdens and cares. Isn't that sad.The LORD has offered to take on ALL of my cares, all I have to do is "cast" them upon Him.
But I can't even seem to do that without His help.
I cast them.
Then I take them right back.
Just kidding Lord.
I really DO want to carry this huge ball and chain around. (??)
As I am speaking with God about this, a sweet, beautiful psalm comes to mind:
Restore to me the joy of Thy salvation
Yes! That's it! That's what I am seeking!
Once again, it seems to me, the Lord has reminded me of one of the most basic principle of Christianity: Keep your mind dwelling on the Lord and what He had done and will do for you.And go tell others.
that you've been saved from an eternity of misery.
that HEAVEN will surely be worth it all.
that we SHOULD live on a higher plane, free of the burdens this life throws on us.
that God has always been in control.
Just typing that last thought makes me smile.
Wait, what was that?!
I think it was a weight lifting off of my shoulders!
