“I removed the burden from their shoulders;
their hands were set free from the basket.”
(Psalm 81:6 NIV)
I cradled a cup of coffee in my hands one morning while I enjoyed the birds singing and the water glistening in the sun. Suddenly God spoke to me. He said, “You’re on vacation!” An unexpected peace came over me and I imagined myself sitting on a beach. I realized I had allowed myself to get bogged down with worry - trying to control this and that. He reminded me life is a gift. Every day is a free gift to enjoy in communication with Him.
