Streams in the Desert | Burdens

For my high school graduation I received a copy of the devotional, Streams in the Desert – a collaboration of Biblical wisdom from faithful men and women. So often I turn to my copy of Streams. The short snippets always give me a little boost.

The word “burden” is translated in the Bible margin, “what he (Jehovah) has given thee”. The saints’ burdens are God-given; they lead him to “wait upon Jehovah,” and when that is done, in the magic of trust, the “burden” is metamorphosed into a pair of wings, and the weighted one “mounts up with wings as eagles”.
-The Sunday School Times

These words are just perfect, sometimes I feel burdened … the weight of the world, the daily grind, and the immense responsibility of raising children can feel overwhelming. But I am encouraged by this, the burden I sometimes feel will be the same thing that gives me strength. Amen and have an English muffin for breakfast while babywearing, like me :)

… Oh so many ways to follow along …
