We had purchased every item on the teacher's list and packed it all in my 7 year-old son's backpack on the first day of school. I helped him put it on, only to see him tumble backwards from the weight of it!
I remembered that long ago scene as I read the Bible this morning, realizing that Jesus longs to lighten our loads. He daily bears our burdens...if we will let him.
There have been times when God has removed me from a situation, location or responsibility, just because He had something better just ahead. And He assured me: If it is His will for me, it will be a blessing to those I love also.
Lord Jesus, I need You every hour! Help me not to be so "responsible" that I miss out on what YOU long to do in and through me.
