Airline travel seems to be getting more and more difficult these days. We have to be mindful of the clothes we wear, as well as what and how we pack so that we’re not delayed as we go through the security checkpoints at the airport.
These days, the smart and seasoned traveler knows the best bet is to avoid the hassle of checking luggage altogether, limiting their load to simpler carry-on bags. Let’s face it. Traveling lighter is just easier all the way around. The same holds true in our personal lives, as well.
Many of us carry around the “excess baggage” of our lives each and every day. We fill our hearts and minds with anxiety, worry, and countless concerns. Our minds race, and many of us have a tough time disconnecting.
As good stewards, we don’t actually have to go through security checkpoints and check our problems or worries at the ticket counter. We have a much better route to go in order to lessen our loads and lighten our burdens.
We simply need to lay our problems, concerns, and fears at the foot of the Cross and ask Jesus to help us. He tells us in the scripture that He will help us on our journey and that “The Lord will guard your coming and going both now and forever.” (Ps 121:8)
During these remaining months of the Year of Faith, let us remember to lay every burden down at Christ’s feet, and don’t forget to travel lightly on the journey of life.
