Word of the Day:Don’t burden yourself with worry
Corrie ten Boom says this about worry: “Worrying is carrying tomorrow’s load with today’s strength- carrying two days at once. It is moving into tomorrow ahead of time. Worrying doesn’t empty tomorrow of its sorrow, it empties today of its strength.” How true!
When we worry, we carry around our past and future cares on our shoulders burdening ourselves with unnecessary burdens. A story is given of a pastor who was heavily burdened with anxiety. He made the mistake of burdening himself in the present with things that belonged to the past and the future.
Let us go to our savior Jesus with our burdens through prayer. Let us place our hope and confidence in God. Never try to carry tomorrow’s burdens with today’s grace rather let us rejoice in the strength God gives us for today.
“Cast your cares on the LORD and he will sustain you; He will never let the righteous fall.”
