Over the weekend I was troubled by some things that are really small in light of eternity. It’s all too easy to be burdened by the cares of this life and let it rob us of our joy. I hadn’t spent enough time in God’s Word and in prayer. It’s something I need daily. I knew I needed to get back on track this morning. As I was reading my Bible, I was very encouraged by Psalm 68:19.
Blessed be the Lord, who daily bears our burden,
The God who is our salvation. Selah. (NASB)
I knew I needed to confess my worry to the Lord and leave my burdens with Him. I am not in control but He is and He is the only one who can change the situations that trouble me. As I walked this morning, I was able to spend much needed time with the Lord in prayer. My heart was much lighter when I finished my walk. I am so thankful the Lord daily bears our burdens.
