OK, growing up Catholic, I’ve known passages in the Bible since CCD, but I’ve not internalized verses as much as I’d like. With my rededication to God and living a life for Him, I’m making progress.
Last week I was reminded of a verse that says, “Give me your burdens.” I had a huge challenge with an event site where I had held a seminar. I got what was supposed to be a final bill, and although it was much more than expected, I agreed to pay it.
A week later I got another final bill to which they had added an additional $2000. Yikes! What? My initial reaction to that was to get upset. In days of old, with my old thinking, I would have felt and acted like a victim. I would have thrown a bit of a pity party and possibly a hissy fit.
As I grow in my personal journey, I made a new decision to let go of that kind of response and play it God’s way. I prayed about it and asked Jesus to take away my burden. He did. Wow, was I shocked to get an email from the event site saying they would accept the initial amount. I was gearing up for a fight that didn’t materialize.
I’m curious about what will happen with the new burdens I’m handing over. What burdens do you need to hand over?
Thank you God for truth, love, and laughter,
