Reading: Psalm 55: 22
When you have a burden to bear, most of us take it upon ourselves to try and work it out in our own way. We think about what outcome we want and try to take actions that will get us there. When we worry, we internalize, and think of all the possible negative outcomes that could come about. When we face adversity, we may think we are in it alone and feel like the world is so big compared to us.
But we should cast our burdens on the Lord. God is the one who will sustain us. Our burden will not go away, but it will be a lot lighter on us. If we have total trust in God and place our problems on God, we will find inner peace and tranquility. --Chad Hershberger, Camp Mount Luther Director
Closing: Watch this YouTube video with a rendition of the song, "Cast Your Burdens."
