The Weight of the World, October 14, 2014 Daily Reflection

Footprints in concrete

At times there is just too much; school, grading, lesson plans, teaching, attending classes, reading 6-8 hours each weekend, answering questions, laundry, grocery shopping, making and keeping appointments, sports practices, sports competitions, keeping up with the house and the list goes on and on and on. With all that pressure something is bound to give at some point.  Sugar Land sang it best in the song Fall into Me “When the weight of the world bears down so strong…you leave footprints on the street.”

Today, take a moment and let something give. Give something up, let something go, before the weight of the world crushes you. Today, I am giving up something small but time consuming and letting it go. I am praying that God will give me the wisdom to recognize what is the most important and what can be let go.
