Have you ever felt like you were carrying the weight of the world on your shoulders and you couldn't do what you wanted because you were weighed down? Me too! Then I read this scripture in Hebrews 12:1 that encouraged me to "lay aside every weight" and the sin that gets me all tangled up. I think the problem with most of us is that we lay down weights but we lay them in front of us and when we start to move forward we end up tripping over things we laid down! Not all weights are sins. Sometimes where you are carrying that weight is the problem. Take a look at where your burdens are. Let me encourage you today to "cast all of your cares" upon the Lord. It literally means to hurl them in His direction. He will give you only what you are able to endure and nothing more. Get ready for a lighter load and opportunities to open right in front of your eyes this week. Lighten up!
