Leave Your Burdens with God

Cast thy burden upon the Lord, and He shall sustain thee: He shall never suffer the righteous to be moved.
– Psalm 55:22

A human mind can stand only so much weight. One mental burden piled upon another can cause serious difficulty over time. Fortunately you do not need to carry your burdens alone. God will help you. But how is this done? Releasing your worries to God accomplished in the mind. Practice thinking God is with you. Tell Him about your burdens and believe that He will relieve and assist you. Form a picture of yourself shifting your burdens to Him. But—and this is most important—don't half-give them and don't take them back. Let God handle them. Leave them with Him.
