So I am back! 🙂 Generally speaking, and feeling better. I appreciate your patience with me as I make my way through your comments and blog posts. So back to our regularly scheduled programming:
I am grateful this week because this passage from Psalm 55 reminds me to release my burdens to the Lord, rather than holding onto them (what good does that ever do?). I encountered a situation over the weekend where I unexpectedly felt quite burdened, and I wrestled with this matter for an hour or two before discussing it with a trusted friend. Following that conversation, I was able to acknowledge the issue for what it was, and then let it go.
I am so thankful when God brings the right people into our lives at just the right time, and then uses them to speak words of peace and comfort to us during our time of need. So while I am still concerned about the matter, I am now able to “cast” this burden upon the Lord — as the psalmist says — and trust that He has the situation fully in hand.
May the Lord prosper all that you do in His name in the week to come. 🧡
