Lay Down Your Burdens

 1 Peter 5:7 “I will cast all my cares upon Him, and lay all my burdens down at His feet, and for the times I do not know what to do, I’ll just cast all my cares upon Him.”

Internet, cell phones, High definition television and ipods: All things that are supposed to make our lives easier and still we don’t have the time to slow down and admire the life God has chosen for us.

Life is hard sometimes…

So, place yourself in the Peace Jesus offers us all. Are you in need of a friend right now? Who’s the best friend you could ever have? Jesus Christ. His love is insurmountable and it will overflow into your life if you allow Him in.

He will shoulder all your burdens.

I was remembering this story my sister, Penny told me one time. It made a lot of sense to me. It was about this man who was walking down the road with two heavy bags strapped to his back. He walked for miles until someone stopped and offered him a ride in the back of his wagon. The man said thank you so much. I’m so tired and he climbed up into the wagon. The man that was driving him looked back and he noticed that the man was sitting in the wagon with him, but he was still carrying the two loads on his back, not knowing he could just set them down.

It’s interesting that people still carry the weight of the world upon their shoulders when Jesus wants to do it for them. Just reach out your hand and He’ll take all your burdens away. You can walk hand and hand with your Savior.

HE LOVES YOU. GIVE IT ALL TO HIM. LET HIM ENTER YOUR HEART AND LIFE. HE FORGIVES YOU FOR EVERYTHING AND ANYTHING YOU HAVE EVER DONE.

YOU ARE FORGIVEN. THERE IS NO WEIGHT ON YOUR SHOULDERS WHEN YOU ARE WALKING WITH JESUS.

  • Friend:

    I like the part about putting your bags down. There so stinkin’ heavy. His strength is stronger.

  • Chantelle:

    reminds me of Pilgrim’s Progess where a man went so far and the whole journey he was hurting so much to find Salvation. This is a really nice message. drop your burdens. We so easily forget.

  • John:

    Very encourging and a good reminder for anyone. I like the story about the man on the truck with the bags. Only God can help us carry the burdens but, we have to be able to give it over to him.

    Kelly,God does love us at all times, especially in the times we do not know what to do. Remember to always lean on Him only. Notice the driver came when the man was too tired to walk any further.

    God is always ever-present in our time of need, He will bring the victory (when you need it most) (trust Him with your whole heart).

  • Very interesting. thank you for sharing!
