Give You Your Bag of Burdens

Fear is the burlap bag of burdens.  It’s overflowing with “whaddifs” and “howells.” Whaddif in spite of everything my weight-reduction plan, I discover that lettuce is fattening and chocolate isn’t?  Howell we pay our child’s tuition?”  Whaddifs and howells…the burlap bag of fear. Cumbersome. Chunky. Unattractive. Scratchy.  Irritating to hold and inconceivable to offer away!

Nobody desires your worries.  The reality is, you don’t need them both. Nobody has to remind you of the excessive price of tension, however I’ll anyway. Fear divides the thoughts.  It splits our power between as we speak’s priorities and tomorrow’s issues.  The result’s half-minded dwelling!

Hebrews 4:16 encourages us to “boldly strategy the throne of our gracious God, the place we could obtain mercy and, in His grace, discover well timed assist.”  God’s assistance is well timed!  God will do the suitable factor on the proper time.  And what a distinction that makes!
