Leave It There

by Jeraeyzon Andoy (30th Batch)

“Now unto him that is able to do exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that worketh in us.”  Ephesians 3:20 (KJV)

There is a song that I really love and it is a song that has helped me learn to trust in Jesus. The title of the song is “Leave It There.”

These words from the song have helped me so much: “Take your burden to the Lord and leave it there.” I wonder how many times we have sung this line but never did them.

If we are honest with ourselves, we would admit that there are times when we take our burdens to the Lord but as soon as we are through asking Him for help, we pick them up again.

When we pick our burdens up again, that is just like saying, “We don’t trust You, Jesus, to solve the problems and crises in our lives.”

May God have mercy on us and forgive us for not trusting His beloved Son!

Do you take your burdens to Jesus and then pick them up again? If so, you are hurting Him and breaking His heart.

Are you willing to trust Jesus with your burdens? If you are, don’t pick them up again. He is waiting for you to trust Him. There are times when He can’t work in our lives because we try to solve our problems ourselves. Let’s get out of His way and leave our burdens to Him.

May God help all of us to do what the words of this beautiful song is telling us. “Take your burden to the Lord and leave it there.”
