Lay It All Down
I have this song buzzing in my head and can't get rid of it, not sure of the title, definitely don't remember who sings it or where I heard it...but there is this tune going on and the words, " Lay it all down, lay it all down, lay it all down!" Regardless of where I've heard it the message cannot be clearer, there are things we need to lay down. We need to lay them down because they weigh us down, we need to lay them down because they hinder our progression, we need to lay them down because the Lord wants to carry them for us, we need to lay them down because God's Word says to lay aside every weight and the sin that so easily besets us. This morning our Pastor preached about Jesus never leaving us, that we will have tribulation, but we will also overcome because Christ overcomes in and through us...it's about laying things down. Christians aren't immune from issues, problems and pain, our children give us fits, our money runs out, and we sometimes hate our jobs...our life...What we have going for us is a loving and living God that sees where we are, know what's going on, and One that refuses to leave us and will never leave us alone. Lay it all down...see what the Lord will do!
