The Exchange

The anxious labored breathing. The weight on your chest. The unknown concerns and worries that weigh. Life has a way of throwing stress on our shoulders and saying in a booming voice, CARRY ME! Do we resist? Do we cast it off? What to do and where to go when life weighs us down.

Have we learned to whom we throw our heaviness when we stumble through our days? Are we connected to the one who sustains life? Do we have an ease with our Father to acknowledge his power and cast our cares?

Fight. Fight. Fight. Continue the good fight.

Cast aside the heaviness to the one who always walks with us. Turn to the left or to the right and tell man what burdens you and get a nod of agreement. Turn to the father who carries our burdens and receive an exchange with the Maker.

The lifter of our heads. Walking always beside us. Asking gently to turn and acknowledge what is available to walk this road. Stepping into His light and opening our mouths with speak of  deepest pains. Opening our hearts to the supernatural exchange of joy for sorrows, peace for anxieties, strength for our weakness, and love for every fear.
