The Burdens Are of Our Own Making

Happy Birthday, Shea Michael!  Thank you, Lord, for my beautiful son and all that he embodies.  Bless his day with everything wonderful from your hands, and may he be surrounded by love and laughter, joy and peace today and every day.  Amen!

Today’s message from God Calling -A.J. Russell, bids us to drop our burdens at Jesus’ feet, and let Him deal with them.  He does know best; I can attest to that from personal experience.  When I thought about burdens, I discovered that they are the fear, the frustration, the self-doubt, the selfishness, etc., that come from within us during the trials and difficulties we encounter.  You see, whatever it is, is going to be, whether you’re upset about it or not.

It’s the getting upset, the anger and indignation, and all that stuff, that burdens us.  We are told in the Bible, that we can do all things through Christ Jesus, who strengthens us.  Jesus has sent us the Holy Spirit to guide, to counsel, to comfort, and to encourage and enlighten us with God’s wisdom in every situation.  We can refuse to be rattled or shaken-thereby in essence, dropping the burdens of the situation at Jesus’ feet.  He will, and does handle them immediately.  As a matter of fact, they were worked out long ago.  But it is our determination to drop them and go on our way in the peace and power of the Lord, that straightway puts us back in authority over it all. -Under Jesus, of course.

Love you from Cafe du Mondieu
