Concerns of this world threaten to disturb our peace of mind, undermine our God-confidence, and weigh us down. As a result, we can find ourselves nursing perceived grievances, judging others, and exalting ourselves instead of God. Fear and pride creep in, leading to a sense of isolation, even alienation, from God and others. God specializes in healing broken hearts, mending shattered dreams, and restoring broken relationships. He delights in relieving us of what weighs us down. He offers you the freedom and renewed energy that comes from giving your burdens to Him. Will you?
Turn to me and be gracious to me, for I am lonely and afflicted. Relieve the troubles of my heart and free me from my anguish. – Psalm 25:16-17
Prayer: God, the burdens of leadership are enough without my adding to them. Show me what I need to lay down so that I can freely move ahead with You. In Jesus’ name, amen.
