Sometimes I get overwhelmed with things I can't control.

the poor. the hungry. the slave. the cutter. the victim. the oppressor. the economy. the danger. the fear. the alcoholic. the embedder. the addict. the prostitute. the pimp. the gang. the policies. the wars. the thief. the murderer. the lost. the mistaken. the forgotten. the religious. the misled. the broken. the invisible. the silent. the lonely. the forgotten. the abandoned. the hopeless. the helpless. the incarcerated. the bound. the angry. the heartbroken. the blind. the lame. the abused.

I'm glad Jesus can handle all of that for me so it's not all on me. I pray that God will use me to lessen the burden on others. Not by picking up their burdens, but by helping them release them to the only one who can handle it all.

  1. What a beautiful post and prayer. I'll join with you in praying that the only one who can touch and heal the hurts in those lives will make Himself real to them.
