God has a great race for you to run. Under his care you’ll go where you’ve never been and serve in ways you’ve never dreamed. But you have to drop some stuff. How can you share grace if you’re full of guilt? How can you offer comfort if you’re disheartened? How can you lift someone else’s load if your arms are full with your own? For the sake of those you love, travel light. For the sake of the God you serve, travel light. For the sake of your own joy, travel light.
There are weights in life you simply cannot carry. Set them down and trust him. I can’t overstate God’s promise in 1 Peter 5:7: “Unload all your worries onto him, since he is looking after you.” What do you say we take God up on his offer? We might find ourselves traveling a little lighter.
