A couple of week ago at church a question was asked. I have been thinking a lot about it since then.
"When we kneel at the alter to pray we bring all of our "baggage" with us and pray that God will take it and carry it for us. But then, when we get up to walk away we pick the baggage up and carry it back home with us. Why don't we leave it there for God to carry?"
I am guilty of this. I pray and pray that God will take my baggage and carry it for me. Then I walk away, dragging it all behind me. I prayed right then that God would help me let it all go, help me learn how to let him carry it for me.
I am feeling much better these days. I think this is something I should have learned a long time ago.
