Lightening The Load

Lightening the load...

"Cast your burdens on the Lord, and He shall sustain you...." -Psalm 55:22

 

The word "cast" is a familiar term to anglers. They cast their bait out into the water in hopes of catching the big fish.
We  "cast" our lots when we want a "big catch" in life - be it a new  spouse, a new job, or a new house. However, when the circumstances  surrounding those "big catches" become burdensome, we may want to cast  them away. The marriage is suffering. The job expectations are  overwhelming. The house may soon be foreclosing.
There is one to  whom we can "cast" all our burdens. And he promises not to cast us away -  no matter what part we may have played in acquiring the burden. Jesus  says, in John 6:37, "All that the Father gives me will come to me, and  the one who comes to me I will by no means cast out." There is nothing  you have done, no burden that you have, that he can't carry for you!


Prayer:  Lord Jesus, today I cast all my burdens, my worries, and my cares upon  you! I choose to believe that you will sustain me no matter what comes  my way this day. In your name, I pray. Amen.


Reflection: Describe a burden you're carrying right now. After casting that burden  onto the Lord in prayer, express how much lighter you feel without it.
