Cast Your Burdens on the Lord

Posted by Steph Whitley on 09/19/2018

Recently, I was going through my day thinking "what is wrong with me?"
I had come off a tiring week but I also realized that I was carrying the weight of some of my burdens.
Once I realized this, I talked to the Lord once again about my worries.
It's a process right!?! Do you ever find yourself praying about a situation or for a person, and then you gradually get into worry mode again?
Peace comes when I recognize that I am operating more in worry mode and make the shift to prayer mode.
Peace comes when I remind my heart of God's character & power.
Peace comes when I keep placing my case into His capable hands.
What about you? Are you operating in worry mode or prayer mode?

Here is a prayer to release our burdens:
God, I give You (this circumstance/this struggle/this person) once again. I place (this) into Your skilled and loving hands. You are all knowing, all powerful and all wise. You are strong and mighty in the battle. This is not too hard for You. Show Your power. Do not delay. Uphold me and carry me through. Steady me and strengthen me. Renew my hope. Amen. 

"Cast your burden on the Lord, and He shall sustain you; He will never allow the righteous to be shaken." Ps 55:22

Hugs to you all, Steph Whitley
