Weary travelers. You've seen them -- everything they own crammed into their luggage. Staggering through terminals and hotel lobbies with overstuffed suitcases, trunks, duffels, and backpacks.
Backs ache. Feet burn. Eyelids droop.
We've all seen people like that.
At times, we are people like that -- if not with our physical luggage, then at least with our spiritual load.
We all lug loads we were never intended to carry. Fear. Worry. Discontent. No wonder we get so weary. We're worn out from carrying that excess baggage. Wouldn't it be nice to lose some of those bags?
That's the invitation of Max Lucado. With the Twenty-third Psalm as our guide, let's release some of the burdens we were never intended to bear.
Using these verses as a guide, Max Lucado walks us through a helpful inventory of our burdens. May God use this Psalm to remind you to release the burdens you were never meant to bear.
ContentsThe luggage of life
The middle C of life : the burden of a lesser God
I'll do it my way : the burden of self-reliance
The prison of want : the burden of discontent
I will give you rest : the burden of weariness
Whaddifs and howells : the burden of worry
It's a jungle out there : the burden of hopelessness
A heavenly exchange : the burden of guilt
Get over yourself : the burden of arrogance
I will lead you home : the burden of the grave
When mourning comes : the burden of grief
From panic to peace : the burden of fear
Silent nights and solitary days : the burden of loneliness
The crowing rooster and me : the burden of shame
Slippery sheep and healed hurts : the burden of disappointment
Jam session : the burden of envy
God's loving pursuit : the burden of doubt
Almost heaven : the burden of homesickness.
