Jesus Himself said it: “in this world you will have troubles,” and we do. As women our days are often long and our burdens are many and heavy.
Just a normal day can test our strength. Add in a sick child, an unsettled argument, an overdue bill, a backed up toilet; whatever strength we had will be quickly drained leaving us to wonder how we will ever make it through the next hour, much less the next day.
Then there is this. So many of us are “fixers” and so we not only carry our own burdens but we take on other’s troubles as well. Is it any wonder we have so many back problems?
Life is full of problems. We can’t escape our troubles but we don’t have to carry them alone. Scripture tells us to cast all our anxieties on the Lord, why, because He cares for us. (1 Peter 5:7)
