Hi friends 👋🤗
I am your friend Bible blogger 😇
It’s story time guys!😃 Would you like to listen to another story?😅 Oh! I can see some nodding and smiling faces.
Alright! Here is another story I heard from someone, I can’t recall🤔 who shared it but it is worth noting.
The story begins…….
“This incident took place in era of missionaries. I day a missionary couple was driving through a village in their vintage car. They noticed one thinly built middle aged woman carrying heavy load on her head.
This lady was poor and typically village woman. The missionary couple felt sorry for her. They decided to lessen her burden. They immediately stopped their car and offered her lift.
The tired lady was overwhelming grateful to this godly couple. The car began to move forward. The couple was seated in the front seats whereas the woman was seated at the back.
After a while the missionary man decided to look back to check on the guest. He was amazed that the woman was seated comfortably. One unique thing he noticed. Can you guess what did he find?
He discovered that the lady was seated with her load still on her head.😨😰 He was shocked. He was wondering why is this woman behaving in this manner.
He informed his wife. Missionary wife was equally astonished. She politely requested the woman to unload her burden. The woman replied humbly, “Saheb, you had mercy on me and allowed me to travel in this expensive car of yours. I am unworthy woman. I am so filthy and dirty and I don’t want to make your car more dirty by keeping my dirty burden down. I fine to keep it on my head.”
Missionary couple were left speechless. Eventually the woman got down near her village and expressed her gratitude and went her own way. The missionary went their way pondering about the nature of the self sufficient and hard working women folk of India.”
All of us have some or the other burden. It could be some kind of worry or concern. We are conscious that we shouldn’t be carrying those burdens in our head however it is very difficult to unload those worrisome thoughts.
It is easy to unload physical burden but very difficult to unload burdens of cares of this world.
1 Peter 5:7 TPT
Pour out all your worries and stress upon him and leave them there, for he always tenderly cares for you.
The Holy Bible encourages us to unload all our cares on the Lord. He can absorb all our worries, stresses, anxieties more than what we can generate and possess. “Leave them there and don’t ever take them back. It’s once for all.”
The word of God says that He tenderly cares for us. He cares for how we feel. It is his desire that we should be carefree. Do you believe this?
What’s your decision?
What are you going to do with your burden? Often I did the same mistake. I would go to the Lord. I would keep my burden at the feet of the Lord. But just before leaving I would again pick up the same burdens saying in my mind, “Lord I don’t want to bother you with my burden. I will try to manage it myself.” What a foolishness! 😫
He is waiting
The Lord Jesus is patiently waiting for you to unload your load once for all at His feet. Go! Go! Go! Drop-it -off that load and you will be able to run your race at a pretty face pace.
