You Don’t Have to Carry the Weight


AtlasHave you ever made a promise to God and wondered if and when you would have to keep it? What if he called you on it? Would you deny it, or would you follow through even if it meant leaving the life and the people you have come to know and love? What if it meant leaving everything? I do not envy anyone who has to make that decision, but is it so horrible to be in God’s favor, to do what he has asked? Or perhaps maybe we are all asked to do something for him, but others just choose not to listen? Does it make us less of a person to deny his will? After all, he has given us free will. It is a great gift. Not even the angels nor the beasts in the wild have free will. With that gift comes great responsibility? We can choose to live this life for ourselves and only ourselves, or we can choose to live this life to help others, to assist others. We can choose to lift another up or we can put them down. We tell ourselves we can live with the choices we make sometimes, but can we really? Could you live with the burden of knowing you could have made a difference in many lives, or even just one life? Could you live with that weight on your heart until it is time to be accounted? I know I try to convince myself sometimes, but I wonder.
