How Much Can You Take?

The Lord Will Sustain You, said Pastor Adrian Rogers.

“Man that is born of woman is full of trouble as the sparks that fly upward.”

It starts almost the day we’re born. We’re born crying, and from there it just goes on and on. We have burdens. If you don’t have burdens, the problem is you’re probably not a thinking person. But I want to tell you today what to do with your burdens.

David wrote, “Cast thy burden upon the Lord and He shall sustain thee; He shall never suffer the righteous to be moved.” David was a king; he was wealthy. What do we learn from this? That burdens come to the high as well as to the low. They come to saints as well as sinners. They come to the old as well as the young. What do we do with our burdens? We have to cast them upon the Lord,

Do you have a broken heart?  Has one of your children ripped your heart out? Is there a husband who has forsaken you? A physical malady gnawing away at your body? Is there a problem perplexing you? The Bible says you are to cast your burden upon the Lord (Psalm 55:22). He will sustain you.

Life can turn to “clabber” without warning and things just seem too hopeless.  There is no way to be totally prepared, except under the sheltering wings of our Heavenly Father.  When my only pain relief isn’t man-made; when I am being pounded and thrown about, it is my fault if the whole thing continues. I know that, but it is so easy to forget just who stands by me when the storms of life are raging. Psalm 55:22 is a good one to place in our wallets, donchaknow.  That’s what I get in My Box of Chocolates.    AMEN
