Pour out all your worries and stress upon him and leave them there, for he always tenderly cares for you.
1 Peter 5:7 TPT
I am a burden carrier.
Dear friends of mine are going through some difficult, life changing circumstances right now. As I speak to them and process their difficulties, I have the tendency to take the burdens in and feel them deep.
My empathy for their struggle and my care for what this is doing to them as a person, creates a heavy desire to take away their pain.
The thing is, I can only do so much. With distance, life constraints and simply being human, I cannot take away their struggles.
I am not meant to.
We are meant to give all our burdens to God; cry out to Him, lay our cares at His feet, lean into His care and comfort.
Pour out your worries and stress upon Him and leave them there.
Whether you are going through hard times, or loved ones are struggling, lean into God. Pour out you cares to Him so He can pour into you.
