God answers prayer.

Have you ever thought about your prayers as little pages with wings, headed up to the Heavenly Father?  That’s how I picture my prayers…page after page winging themselves upward.  And the good news is that the Father hears and answers, so we don’t need to hold on to our problems and fret over them.  God has this!  When I went to high school, it was the era before book bags, so I carried all of my books in my arms.  Now, I was a skinny teen and not very strong, so some days, it just seemed like my arms were going to break under the load.  Now, I think of all those books I carry and compare them to the troubles that I carry around.  I want to be strong and handle everything alone.  But God tells me to give Him my burdens.  Once I do that, it is easier to walk around and praise the Lord for all He has done and is doing for me. Freed of burdens, my arms go up and my heart is lighter.  So many burdens…but God can carry them all.  Some are unanswered prayers, but I continue to hope, knowing that God answers prayers in His time and in His way.  Have you trusted God to take your burdens and answer your prayers?
