Sweet carry? Have you ever been so worn out that you just couldn’t take another physical or emotional step? Perhaps if it hadn’t been for someone, friend, sibling or spouse, lifting our burden and carrying it for us, we might still be there. Sweet times! There’s something unexplainably comforting when an emotional load is suddenly lifted from our hearts.
Think about it. There are also times when, anticipating a burden, we turn to these same folks and ask, “Will you help me carry this load?” Are these times no less sweet? Or, because we anticipate their help, these times may be even sweeter?
God’s Word tells us: “‘I tell you that in the same way there will be more rejoicing in heaven over one sinner who repents than over ninety-nine righteous persons who do not need to repent.’” (Luke 15:7).
Our burdens are meant to be carried by a loving Shepherd Savior Who knows no burden too heavy He can’t carry. So, enjoy the ride. The view up on top is fabulous as we bump along through this life always carried by our Jesus, the Savior who carries us. Sweet!
We pray. “Heavenly Father, We pray that You would use our lives to make Your love known among all those around us; for family members and friends who don't know You and Your love. We pray for this moment of rejoicing.We pray that the lost would be found. In Jesus name. Amen.”
“Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself.
Each day has enough trouble of its own” (Matthew 6:34)
