Give Him Your Burdens

Have you ever had a load that was more than you could carry? You started out all right but along the way it just got heavier until you couldn’t go any further? My dad told me a story of when he was in the military. They were on a long march and being non-combatant he didn’t carry a weapon. He was raised doing hard labor and actually came out of boot camp weighing more than when he went in, he was in great shape. He said he looked at a soldier on one side of him and he was about to collapse under his load, so dad took his weapon and carried it for him. He looked at the soldier on the other side and he too was weakening under the strain. Dad had him loosen his pack and he slipped his hand in and lifted the weight off his shoulders.

“Cast thy burden upon the Lord, and He shall sustain thee.” Psalm 55:22

Dad used this story to preach a message about attitudes and how his attitude changed when he help others and stopped worrying about himself. When I read this passage of scripture I thought of how those men must have felt when they were able to give their burden to someone else, someone who cared. After a short time they must have felt refreshed and renewed. When we turn our burden to the Lord He will keep you!

Just a thought! God Bless…
