There are several major events in the history of our lives. We’re born, we get married, we die, etc. Many major events there, I don’t want to go through the whole list. Okay, one example… The first day we’re tall enough to ride the big roller coasters, I must say that is quite the exciting day!!!
Each day is built up of many small things. Major things don’t happen that often. It’s very much like bitterness, it tends to creep up and grow on us over time. It’s those moments where the milk has been left on the counter for 2 hours to spoil. Or when the sibling just has to ask you the same question 4 times or was it 400 million?! Or when you get awoken too early. Or when the baby cries 14.2 hours per day.
We really need to be careful about these little things. They creep in and begin to affect us. And then as one piles upon the other, eventually we fall into a bad mood.
Instead, let’s look to Christ as we feel our bodies and minds tense up. Our burdens are not meant to be carried by us. And we aren’t able to carry these burdens. REMEMBER THIS! We cannot bear our own burdens. Christ died for us to carry our burdens. Cast them upon Christ. Otherwise you will become that stressed, overworked, crazy haired person. (Nothing against crazy hair. I’m just making a POINT.) 😉
