Carrying a load

May sometimes feel light

On the other hand

The moment you begin to lift it

The pressure can become unbearable

Days that weigh you down

Are thoughts that you rehearse

Over and over

In your mind

Trying to determine a solution

For your circumstance

And you find yourself right back

Where you started

Give it to God!

 

casting all your cares [all your anxieties, all your worries, and all your concerns, once and for all] on Him, for He cares about you [with deepest affection,

 and watches over you very carefully].

1 Peter 5:7 AMP

Working is a part of life

When you wake up

Whether you’re a parent, a child or an adult

There is work to be done

Fixing your bed

Preparing breakfast

 A student

An employee

We all have responsibilities

This is your lot in life

That transcends from

Generation to generation

Be glad

Be grateful

For out of all of the chores

You’ve acquired throughout your life

Remember you are loved

 

Behold, here is what I have seen to be good and fitting: to eat and drink, and to find enjoyment in all the labor in which he labors under the sun during the few days of his life which God gives him—for this is his [allotted] reward.

Ecclesiastes 5:18 AMP

Also, every man to whom God has given riches and possessions, He has also given the power and ability to enjoy them and to receive [this as] his [allotted] portion and to rejoice in his labor—this is the gift of God [to him].

Ecclesiastes 5:19 AMP

   For he will not often consider the [troubled] days of his life, because God keeps him occupied and focused on the joy of his heart [and the tranquility of

God indwells him].

Ecclesiastes 5:20 AMP

 

 For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.

John 3:16 KJV

Life’s troubles can seem like a battle

The affect it has on you

Can become overwhelming

The answers you need

Can be long and drawn out

Through the difficult times

Don’t give up

Don’t give in

Don’t claim it

Each day believe that

You are an overcomer

Have faith

The smallest amount of faith

Will get you through

Just believe and

Watch how your situation

Changes

You owe it to yourself

 

He answered, “Because of your little faith [your lack of trust and confidence in the power of God]; for I assure you and most solemnly say to you, [a]if you have [living] faith the size of a mustard seed, you will say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there,’ and [if it is God’s will] it will move; and nothing will be impossible for you.

Matthew 17:20 AMP

A day can

Sometimes feel longer than others

A day can

Sometimes become overwhelming

A day can

Be one of peace and enjoyment

Your day is what you make it

Think of this

Each day

Appreciate it

Be grateful

Welcome it

With peace and contentment

And live a life of purpose

Being hopeful

Being the best you

 

Finally, [b]believers, whatever is true, whatever is honorable and worthy of respect, whatever is right and confirmed by God’s word, whatever is pure and wholesome, whatever is lovely and brings peace, whatever is admirable and of good repute; if there is any excellence, if there is anything worthy of praise, think continually on these things [center your mind on them, and implant them in your heart]. 

Philippians 4:8 AMP

 

The things which you have learned and received and heard and seen in me, practice these things [in daily life], and the God [who is the source] of peace and well-being will be with you.

Philippians 4:9 AMP

Speak words of love

Speak words of kindness

Speak words of peace

All too often we tend to

Wear our hearts on our sleeves

In doing so, our mouths

Give a message that can

Be unpleasing to others

We ought to treat people

As we would like to be treated

Remember the gestures you display

Can impact someone in

A negative or positive manner

Live a life-giving the best of you

That others may be affected in a positive way

 

And the second is like, namely this, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself. There is none other commandment greater than these.

Mark 12:31 KJV
