Cast your burden // 24-07-23

β€œCast your burden on the Lord [release it] and He will sustain and uphold you; He will never allow the righteous to be shaken (slip, fall, fail)” Psalms 55:22 AMP

It’s amazing the stuff that we hold on to, things that we think we might need someday that just end up cluttering up our cupboards, and taking up valuable space even when it’s stuff we haven’t used, worn, or played for years! There is something really freeing about throwing it out, reclaiming calm from the chaos, order from the disorder, margin from the mayhem! Internally, we can be hoarders too, carrying burdens that are detrimental to our mental and spiritual health, holding on to mindsets, beliefs, hurtful memories and emotional pain that clutter up our minds or we stuff away in mental cupboards to deal with someday, and we end up overwhelmed and feeling stuck! Thank God that He can take it; that we can cast (throw away) all our burdens on to Him; that He is able to sustain us, uphold us, restore us, and give us the peace that we actually need. Maybe today is the day to release your burden to the Lord, to stop carrying it any longer, to stop believing that it defines you, and that you need to hold on to it. Lord, thank You that I can cast my burden upon You, that I can trust You, that I am able to seek Your Kingdom and walk in Your righteousness. Thank You for the freedom that I can have as I choose to let go of what I think is mine to keep and take hold of You instead. Amen πŸ‘†πŸΌπŸ™πŸΌ
