Leave Your Burdens at His Feet

Sometimes I just write a list if my burdens get too heavy. Someone once told me that my list is never too long for my Heavenly Father to listen to or to handle. It brought me great comfort because I felt like I was being a bother with so many needs. Life isn't always easy as a single momma in full time ministry. My faith is always challenged. Today I feel weak but I know He is strong and He won't forsake me. I remember a sweet old hymn that sings..."Leave it there...Leave it there...Take your burden to The Lord, oh and leave it there. If you trust and never doubt He will surely bring you out. Take Your burden to The Lord and leave it there. If this world withholds from you it's silver and its gold, and you have to get along with meager fare...just remember in His word how He feeds the little birds. Take your burden to The Lord and leave it there."

 * Please read our power verses below:

*Power verse:
Matthew 6:26-34  NIV
“Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or drink; or about your body, what you will wear. Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothes? 26 Look at the birds of the air; they do not sow or reap or store away in barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not much more valuable than they? 27 Can any one of you by worrying add a single hour to your life[e]?

28 “And why do you worry about clothes? See how the flowers of the field grow. They do not labor or spin. 29 Yet I tell you that not even Solomon in all his splendor was dressed like one of these. 30 If that is how God clothes the grass of the field, which is here today and tomorrow is thrown into the fire, will he not much more clothe you—you of little faith? 31 So do not worry, saying, ‘What shall we eat?’ or ‘What shall we drink?’ or ‘What shall we wear?’ 32 For the pagans run after all these things, and your heavenly Father knows that you need them. 33 But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well. 34 Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own.

*Power verse:
1 Peter 5:7 NIV
Cast all your cares on Him because He cares for you.
