Ever tried to lay down a burden? Have you ever tried to let something go that was totally tormenting your every thought?
Monday night this week I went to bed relatively early (before Greta van Susteran was done talking about Tood Palin). But I was up at 12:55 AM not to return to sleep until 4:30 AM. During the time I was awake I was trying to pray through this thing… I was trying to lay down my burden. I finally fell asleep still holding onto a burden I wanted to let go of.
So, what does one do?
How do you let go of something that you really want to let go of?
I don’t have any answers here.
But an hour or so later I woke up again. The following is what was running through my mind… through my heart… and has stayed present on my mind the past two days. These are the words of Darrin McWatters from everybodyduck. The song: “Consuming Fear”.
I'm gonna trust in the Lord I'm gonna trust in the Lord I'll not be afraid I'll not be afraid I'll not be afraid anymore I cast all my cares upon You And anytime I don't know just what to do I will cast all my cares upon You I cast all my cares upon You
