This is one of my favorite scriptures. And this one…
When I recognize – really BELIEVE and focus – on these passages, there is nothing that can get me down.
I like that the NIV uses the word “anxiety” in I Peter 5:7 because I get anxious. I get nervous trying to manage things on my own. Anxiety is a word to which I can truly relate.
It is easy for me to get caught up in the cares of this world. For things to get busy.
And, well…you get the picture. It is very easy during these times to forget where my strength comes from and to try and carry the burden all by myself.
It is easy to forget that I have an ever-present help.
Lord, please help me remember that you can and will carry the burden. And that you are my true strength.
How about you? Do you try to carry your own burdens?
