Casting Your Burdens

Ever wish you could fly like a bird? For thousands of years people wanted to be able to fly. Leonardo Da Vinci wrote the plans about how to do it, but it took 400 more years until 1903 when the Wright Brothers in North Carolina actually flew an airplane for the first time.

I love verse 22. “Cast your burden on the Lord and he will sustain you.” The word “cast” is the word used when camels drop to their knees, tilt to one side, and drop their burden. When you travel by plane, don’t carry extra baggage; it will cost you. But you don’t really need to fly to “get away from it all.” Our imagination is the tool God gives us, not just to escape from situations that we don’t like, but to remind us that God is with us with God’s love and strength. So take all that’s bothering you, and like a camel, turn it

over to God, letting the winds of the Holy Spirit lift you to a place of peace.
