How many times do we carry things that are too heavy for us when we don’t have to? I once was carrying my bag and struggling while rushing to get to work. Only after a ridiculous amount of time, did I remember that my bag had WHEELS!! I quickly put this burden to the floor and began to roll it and no longer had sweat on my brow. My burden was exponentially lightened by simply putting it down and allowing the built- in structure to help me get what I was hauling around. The same concept can be applied to our daily burdens. God has given us the safeguard of His desire to carry our burdens for us. He wants us to give Him what we so begrudgingly carry around. Because we don’t hand it to Him, we often are struggling and perspiring, when God is right there waiting for us to hand Him that which hinders us. He never said we will not have struggles, but He did say that we can hand them to Him and in His perfect Power, he will carry the load for us and give us the peace that passes all understanding.
“These mountains that you are carrying, you were only supposed to climb.”
― Najwa Zebian
