The troubles of my heart are enlarged: Oh, bring Thou me out of my distresses.
Low at His feet lay thy burden of carefulness,
THE greatest burden we have to carry in life is self. The most difficult
thing we have to manage is self. Our own daily living, our frames and
feelings, our especial weaknesses and temptations, and our peculiar temperaments,--our
inward affairs of every kind,--these are the things that perplex and worry
us more than anything else, and that bring us oftenest into bondage and
darkness. In laying off your burdens, therefore, the first one you must
get rid of is yourself. You must hand yourself and all your inward expe.riences,
your temptations, your temperament, your frames and reelings, all over
into the care and keeping of your God, and leave them there. He made you
and therefore He understands you, and knows how to manage you, and you
must trust Him to do it.
