Happy Humpday! Begin it with the Word of God

“I took the world off your shoulders, freed you from a life of hard labor.” Psalm 81:6

I’ve used little of my bicep and leg muscles during the past thirty years working in offices. There were days when the shipment of paper arrived that I had to lug and tug cases to the storage room, and on occasion, I’d move a printer or computer. However, it was the caring heart muscle and eight muscles in the tongue that got the most exercise.

Working in a church office can be the easiest or the hardest place to work—all in one day. It can be predictable and unpredictable—all in one day. It can be a source of joy and a source of sorrow—all in one day. However, the promise that God would free me from a life of hard labor remained constant every day. That kind of labor had little to do with body muscles and everything to do with soul support.

Dear Lordsky, thank you for taking the burdens from my shoulders and placing them in your strong arms. Amen.
