This is a great visual reminder of what it looks like to carry around worries and then try to take on other people’s. Our hands get full. It gets heavy. And while holding onto our worries, we can’t grab hold of God’s peace. The Bible tells us to:

“Cast your burden on the Lord, and he will sustain you; he will never permit the righteous to be moved.” Psalm 55:22

“Anxiety in a man’s heart weighs him down, but a good word makes him glad.” Proverbs 12:25

“Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.” Philippians 4:6-7

May we let go of our fears and worries and trust in the Lord, lifting up our concerns, praying for others, and living in His peace, one day at a time. Amen
