Self’s Re-assigned Burdens!

Ephesians 4:32 “Be kind to
one another, tenderhearted,
forgiving one another, as GOD
in CHRIST forgave you.”

Self’s Re-assigned Burdens!

Freed at Last!

The failure to forgive
adds weights to our walk.
Resentment’s sarcasm
“depresses” as well.

Proud looks as if “better
than”, wiser or smarter…
expand then that gap
between Heaven and Hell.

So bend the heart faster
than kneeling — most urgent!
Make humble your thoughts;
prefer others….not Self!

Then! In Time shall HE lift
up our faces now prostrate.
At just the right moment,
HE’ll come with our Help!

As such, with Forgiveness
outpouring at present, I
bear no more weights which
have burdened my health.

Successfully freed, now this
hearts’ hand extending…
invites you to soaring just
by HIS Love — held!

As HIServant daily laying these self-imposed burdens down at HIS feet,


Devotional: Mark 11:25 “And whenever you stand praying, forgive, if you have anything against anyone, so that your FATHER also WHO is in heaven may forgive you your trespasses.”

Unforgiveness, Pride, Haughtiness, “Better Than/Superior thinking, Contempt and all such self absorbed “loads”.

THESE are the self imposed burdens we often cling to with greater desperation than our LORD GOD.

It’s a daily battle against the flesh and the influences of satan. While knowing these exist and that they slow us down, still so many remain — unchanged.

Psalm 55:22 “Cast your burden on the LORD, and HE will sustain you; HE will never permit the righteous to be moved!”

Which depressing force then is so worth keeping? Who in your life cannot ever feel your forgiveness when CHRIST wholly forgave — unforgivable you?

Speaking most of all to myself, laying once again such selfish weights down at HIS feet, now quickly before HIM, my friends!

1 John 1:9 “If we confess our sins, HE is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness!”

Yes! Surrender the false badge of Offense
and relinquish completely all these expressions of Pride.

Help us, oh GOD, now to leave all Justice to YOU… without any exceptions! Yes! Hear our hearts’ cry, “Thank YOU, thank YOU, dearest LORD JESUS!

Colossians 3:13 “Bearing with one another and, if one has a complaint against another, forgiving each other; as the LORD has forgiven you, so you also must forgive.”

So! RE-assign all these burdens to HIM WHO holds out HIS nail-scarred hands to take them!

Amen and amen!
