It has been a busy couple of weeks. Especially since getting back from vacation. Lots of mail and other things to sort through. Too much to do and not enough time to do it.
Yesterday, I put together new bookshelves and moved them in the office. I had to hurry home to clean up for our Light For The Lost Banquet last night, so I had no time to clean up my office yesterday. When I came in this morning, it was a mess. You couldn’t see the bottom of my desk. It was buried with mail, junk, files, junk, books, and junk.
This afternoon, I cleaned house. I sorted through everything and now, the once buried desk, is now clean. What a feeling!
Life is often like a desk that is buried with stuff. We try to make headway, but things continue to be piled on. Before we know it we are buried under. Pressures weigh us down. Hardships surround us until we feel like we can’t make it anymore. That is when Jesus comes along and begins to pull the stuff away. He begins to lift the burdens and to help us see the light at the end of the tunnel.
When life gets too hard and you feel buried under, remember Jesus was once buried but now He is alive and well.
