“Praise be to the Lord, to God our Savior, who daily bears our burdens.”

Psalm‬ ‭68‬:‭19‬ NIV

Every day brings:

  • New choices to make
  • New challenges to face
  • New fears to conquer
  • New burdens to bear

Every day brings:

  • Old memories that linger
  • Old mistakes still bearing consequences
  • Old fears that refuse to die
  • Old baggage that demands space and attention

God will bear your burdens every day. 

Old, new, heavy or light.

Everyday.

You may not know what burdens will be thrust upon you today but God does.

He stands with open arms and strong shoulders to bear them for you.

What new burden do you need to give to God? 

What old burden do you need to give to God? 

How can I pray for you today? 

Mistake Making

images-6
When you step out in faith and put yourself out there, life will push back.
It’s not going to be easy and you will make mistakes.
A mistake means that you are trying,
so pick yourself up off the ground and try again.
Do something new.
Relate to people in a new way.
Reach out beyond your comfort zone.
Take that step of faith …again.
Risk failure.
Failure is not fatal.
Jesus told a story about this very thing:
“The servant given one thousand said, ‘Master, I know you have high standards and hate careless ways, that you demand the best and make no allowances for error. I was afraid I might disappoint you, so I found a good hiding place and secured your money. Here it is, safe and sound down to the last cent…’
The Master was furious…
Take the thousand and give it to the one who risked the most.
And get rid of this ‘play-it-safe’ who won’t go out on a limb.”
Matthew 25: 24,26,30 MSG
You will never get anywhere if you run back to what you know at every challenge.
God is calling you to grow. To take what He has given you and invest it.
My friend, get out there and make a lot of new mistakes, get out of your comfort zone, risk and invest what God has placed in your hands. You don’t have to play it safe with the love and grace of God – He has more than enough for you to give it away freely and without fear.

Risk It.

Daily 

  

Every day brings something new to the table.

New choices to make.

New challenges to face.

New fears to conquer.

New burdens to bear.

The day also brings old things already on the table.

Old memories that linger.

Old mistakes still bearing consequences.

Old fears that refuse to die.

Old baggage that demand space and attention.

Praise be to the Lord, to God our Savior, who daily bears our burdens. (‭Psalm‬ ‭68‬:‭19‬ NIV)

Everyday God will bear your burdens.

Old, new, heavy or light.

Everyday.

You may not know what burdens will be thrust upon you today but God does.

He stands with open arms and strong shoulders to bear them for you.

Let Him. Trust Him. Rest in Him.
