Burdened


Tonight I have the weight of the world on my shoulders. I'm tired. I'm tired of fighting this. I'm tired of carrying this burden. I don't even have the strength to empty my thoughts onto my keyboard and into the bloggosphere. I'm just gonna roll over and hope that morning brings some promise of a better day. But I'm not crossing my fingers nor holding my breath.

FWIW, if we were in the same geographic vicinity, I would give you a big hug right now. I can't remove your burden; but, I can certainly empathize.

You know there is only one source, on Man greater than us all, that can truly "make your burden light"!

Don't forget you're not alone.

My thoughts and prayers are with you.

Oh no! You know what, you need to take a vacation. I just got back from Seattle and it was marvelous. I turned off my phone too just to make sure I got the full experience of really being away.

I hope you get a good night's rest and tomorrow find fulfillment through the promises, "Come unto me, all ye that labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest." (Matt. 11:27-29) "And I will also ease the burdens which are put upon your shoulders, that even you cannot feel them upon your backs, even while you are in bondage. . . that ye may know of a surety that I, the Lord God, do visit my people in their afflictions." (Mosiah 24:14-15)

I pray that your shoulders will be strengthened to bear the burdens you must carry and if you have taken on unnecessary baggage, that you will be wise enough to discard it.

I think I'm having those exact same thoughts.
