Lifes Backpack

Weary, I walk through the day. Every step taken feels as though it will be the final step. As I realize my delima, my thoughts shift to a cause for my weakened state. I soon realize I have been holding on to the troubles which I had faced along my journey.

I had been so eager to see what life had in store around the next corner, that I never took the time to take the smallest of problems to the Lord through prayer. I gathered them up as I traveled and placed them in my backpack of life. Each one, seemingly small and simple, added to weight of a world within the canvas pouch strapped to my shoulders.

Unable to go on, I reach inside and offer them unto God. After a prayer for guidence along my path and thanks for being there to carry the burden of so many steps, I put the pack on my shoulders and prepare to walk away. At once my shoulder ached as the strap settled upon it.

A smile as bright as the morning dawn came to my face instantly. For I know that God was reminding me I no longer needed the backpack. Now that I had refocused on my mission along the journey, instead of analizing every step, I needed only to pray as I faced the trail ahead.

With renewed strength, I continue on my journey. I pray " Gods will be done".

excellent! You have a couple minor misspellings but overall and most of all, the piece is wonderful and insightful.

It's so true that the little, often insignificant things, can weigh us down the most when they are all added together! Thank the Lord that He offered to carry our burdens! Good job, Kevin.
