Your backpack

Your backpack

How much does your backpack weigh?
Imagine having a backpack on your back and you start loading things in it.

Your backpack

Depending on what you are doing and for how long; dictates what you are going to load. Be it backpacking, hiking, walking, school, work, picnic, and so forth. Each task requires different things and amounts, and that can lead to a very heavy backpack.

The same holds true for your everyday life.
Imagine putting on a backpack and loading it with daily things. From your personal and professional life, family life, friends, neighbors, community, schools, activities, events, church, health, chores and trying to work in some time for rest.

You have to load your backpack light as if you were going on a week-long backpacking trip in the mountains. The exception is; load your backpack with only what you need.

Your daily life is the same. Pack for what you need. It is ok to not be able to get everything done and have to shift things to the next day; or the weekend. If you load your backpack full; it will be heavy, hard to carry and tiring.

Understanding that not everything is a priority, and that it is perfectly fine to let things that are not urgent wait.

Check your backpack in the morning and empty out the unnecessary stuff. Release those burdens to the Lord, and let him guide your way. Never overload yourself, never stop, and never give up. Carry only the burdens that you need.

Psalms 68:19 NIV
Praise be to the Lord, to God our Savior, who daily bears our burdens.
