This morning as I was combing my five-year old daughter Bella’s hair for school, I remembered how when she was just learning to use words to communicate she would cry, extend her arms and say, “Carry you Mommy, carry you.” This went on for a couple of months before figuring out she was supposed to say “Carry me Mommy!” Now my baby is too big for me to carry and instead asks for hugs and kisses repeatedly.
I thought about it this morning and was thankful that I can ask my Heavenly Father to carry me. I can use more eloquent words than my baby Bella did, but His Word reminds me that I can give Him my worries because He cares for me. If I can’t figure out exactly how to express myself, I can be reminded that in 1 Peter 5:7 it says, “Give all your worries and cares to God, for he cares about you.” When I don’t know what to say, I can say, “Carry me Heavenly Father!” and be at peace.
So today, I don’t know what’s weighing on you, but whatever the case may be you have access to God through His Son Jesus, and you can say, “CARRY ME” with open arms. What will God do, turn away and say He’s too busy? Not at all! He will carry us and make a way. If you’re burdened and filled with anxiety, raise your hands and say, “CARRY ME”!!!
“Blessed be the Lord—
day after day he carries us along.
He’s our Savior, our God, oh yes!
He’s God-for-us, he’s God-who-saves-us.”
Psalm 68:19-20 (MSG)
