Releasing Burdens and the GraceLaced Mondays Link-up

Welcome to GraceLaced Mondays! Grace is found in the everyday when you are intentional about taking note of it.

It is found in the sink full of dishes awaiting you after a family meal, it shines in the faces of your imperfect children, it soothes from the pages of God's Word, and it is tucked into the enjoyment of a fresh batch of cookies. Grace is in a beautiful moment and a heartbreaking one alike. Grace is blessing beyond what you and I deserve.

*********************************

There are times when we feel the burden of a concern or frustration weigh heavy on our hearts.  This Glorious Day shared a poignant analogy last week, comparing the burden of unforgiveness with a tree in need of pruning:

"Sometimes it’s not easy to give God your burden. You want to keep it to yourself. It may seem that the burden is unfixable, or that maybe your frustration at the situation is all that keeps you going....The burden of this person and their actions consumed my thoughts and kept me down each day. Finally, it dawned on me. God wanted me to pray for this person the way that I should. It’s not always easy to obey God, but it’s what we have to do."
