Happy New Year, or (Bon Ane in creole)!
I would like to share a picture with you. I took this pic last week, while I was walking in Simone, a small village close to our house. Initially, it had a big impact on me, due to what this older women and her donkey were physically doing. See what you think……..
Seriously, can you believe the load she is carrying on her head? Not to mention, the poor donkey!
Over the past week, God has used this picture to speak to me on a heart or spiritual level. It is easy for me to become “loaded down” by the many unknowns here. But, as a child of God, I don’t have to carry anything, big or small. He promises to carry it for me, and even carry me. I can leave my worries, loads, and burdens at the foot of the cross! Thank you, Jesus!
Here are just a few of the verses that have spoken to me this week.
“Look to The Lord and His strength; seek his face always.” Psalm 105:4
“For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.” Jeremiah 29:11
“For my yoke is easy and my burden is light.” Matt 11:29
Blessings to you and your family, as we serve together.
