Life can get so complicated that it seems we sometimes forget that we're supposed to be living a joyful life, I see very few people today that truly look as though they're enjoying life at all. I know there are burdens that we all bear but do they have to stay with us every second of every day? Do we have to show our burdens in our countenance to the world? Is there a way to put on a facade without being insincere?
To live life with a constant scowl cannot possibly be showing the love of Christ to the world can it? Of course we are not to just show the love of Christ, we are to tell the world about our risen Savior and the forgiveness of sins through His sacrifice and share the wonderful promise of love, peace and hope that we can have only through being united to Christ.
As Christians are we trusting in the sovereignty and goodness of God daily or are we carrying so many burdens that what we show the world is a knocked down, dragged out, over doing it person who forgets that to be filled with the Spirit of God we must open the Word and drink in the words and open our hearts in prayer to Him.
I choose to trust Him today, I don't want to be that person that is barely existing because of the burdens I carry simply because I choose not to place them at the foot of the cross.
Let's thrive in our hope and knowledge of Him today! He is in control.
