Cast your burden upon Him

THE LORD IS FAR FROM THE WICKED, BUT HE HEARS THE
   PRAYERS OF THE RIGHTEOUS.
                           ( PROVERBS 15:29 *NKJV )

 We may pray that God will handle a problem for us, or to
   fulfill a dream we have, while never letting it go for Him to handle.
   We instead take it back and try to handle it on our own.

       We may then even put all of our trust in another to solve it for
   us as well.  Now it is written; IT IS BETTER TO TRUST IN THE
   LORD THAN TO PUT CONFIDENCE IN MAN.  ( PSALM 118:8 )

       So the next time that you ask God to handle something for you,
   leave it in God's capable hands, and; REST IN THE LORD, AND
   WAIT PATIENTLY FOR HIM. ( PSALM 37:7 )   Do not pull it back
   again and try to handle it without Him.

       Now this reminds me of a poem that I often read before I pray
   for something, and I will share it with you right now.  I hope that
   you will enjoy it as much as I do.

                                       Broken Dreams

                                     As children bring
                                     their broken toys
                                with tears for us to mend,
                               I brought my broken dreams
                                             to God
                               because He was my friend!

                                     But then instead
                                        of leaving Him
                                  in peace to work alone,
                                       I hung around
                                    and tried to help
                                        with ways
                                    that were my own.

                               At last I snatched them back
                                          and cried,
                                "How can you be so slow?"
                                    "My child," He said
                                     "What could I do?
                                   You never did let go."
