Give Jesus Your Shopping Bags
 
It is wonderful to know that when Jesus left this earth and went back to His throne in heaven, He sent back a Comforter, the Holy Spirit, who can be with us at all times!
 
Have you ever gotten up in the morning, feeling just a little down? I think the devil has many ways of getting to God's people. He uses any method or means he can. One way is depression. It happened to me recently. But God’s Word reminded me of the verse: “Thou wilt keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on thee: because he trusteth in thee.” Isaiah 26:3. The message was exactly what I needed.
 
Then Psalm 55:33 came to mind: “Cast thy burden upon the Lord, and he shall sustain thee; he shall never suffer the righteous to be moved...” The heavy feeling was beginning to lift. I prayed, "God, on thee I cast my burden. Please carry it for me, and hold me up."....
 
I was reminded of a time in my childhood when I went to the grocery store with Mom. The distance was about a mile-and-a-half. On the return trip, with our paper shopping bags full of groceries, I became very tired and begin to complain that the rolled-paper handles (no soft plastic shopping bags in those days) were beginning to cut into my hands. I was carrying only one small shopping bag in each hand. Mom carried two large bags full. Seeing my distress, she said, "Set your bags down for awhile. We'll have a little rest." After about a minute, without saying anything, she picked up her shopping
 
bags, settled them in her hands, and then she reached down and scooped mine up, too. She had freed me of my burden, taking it upon herself.
 
That's what Jesus does. He frees us of our burden, letting us walk beside Him without any encumbrances. So many times we forget that God is walking beside us. We forget that God is carrying our shopping bags.
 
We worry and stew over things that we cannot do anything about. But God can. I have often found myself fretting over little things, and a gentle voice says, "Let God look after it." My reply is, "Okay, God, it's up to you." And before you know it, God has answered my prayer in ways that I couldn't even have imagined.
 
Isn't it wonderful to know that Jesus is beside us and will carry our burdens (shopping bags) if we will let Him?
