Bearing it All
Have you ever felt as if life has become impossible? Too many dishes. Too many dirty clothes. Too many toys. Too many weeds.
The husband didn't get his raise. The car broke down. You can't afford health insurance any longer.
You love writing, but the balance has tipped and now you feel you need to tuck your hobbies away to make time for everything else.
Wait a minute. Something is wrong--can you guess what it is?
With life, there are so many things that can trip our sights that we forget who we are. We are daughters of our Heavenly Father, who loves us . . .
If only we remember this at all times, all places--everything will melt into its proper place and our faith becomes renewed.
It is Christ's place to bear our burdens--He bore them that one night in Gethsemane. Why should I worry about anything if I do what He asks me to do? I believe that if I did them with faith--scripture reading, church attendance, family home evening, Temple attendance--everything will fall into place. I must believe they will. I must trust they will.
With trust in our Father in Heaven, great things can be done.
How does faith help balance out your home, hobbies, and spirituality?
