Item description for El Poder de la Oracion: Como Conectarnos a la Fuente de Poder by Jill Briscoe & Silvia Cudich...
Overview One paraphrase of 1 Peter 5:7 says, "You can throw the whole weight of your anxieties upon Him for you are His personal concern." Prayer and worry cannot live together. You cannot worry and pray at the same time. Prayer is the place to let your anxieties go--to hand them off to someone else, someone well able to carry them for you. God! It's hard to throw the whole weight of our anxiety upon Him isn't it? How do we do that? When I'm traveling, which seems to be constantly, I carry a briefcase full of files and books with me. It's heavy. When I'm on the road alone my back hurts by the end of the day. Often I'm with my husband, Stuart, or daughter, Judy, who hurry to take my briefcase to lift the load. I want to help so it's not an extra burden for them. Sometimes I say, "Let's both carry it. Let's share it." but the handle isn't big enough and it doesn't work. I've even been tempted to open the bag and take out some books to carry myself so it's lighter for them! But their backs are strong and well able to carry the case while my back is hurting, unable to carry it. So I throw my burden gratefully into their hands! They always smile at me because they love me and are concerned. Occasionally I refuse their kind offer of help. Why? For all sorts of reasons. I get to thinking they have their won burdens, and I should be able to carry a little briefcase filled with a few books. Or I begin to worry that they'll dread having me along because I'm such a nuisance with my moving library! I always reap the consequences of carrying the stuff myself, when guild, self-effort, pride, or stupidity lead me to refuse their helping hand. I'm sure Stuart and Judy consider me very foolish when they are walking right beside me and are willing and able to help, but I insist on going it alone. I think God thinks we are very foolish too when He has told us to hand off our heavy issues to Him and we don't. So don't forget. God is your constant travel companion along life's road. His back is big enough and strong enough for your caseload of worries. And don't be opening the bag and keeping a few books to carry yourself to make it easier on Him. Throw the whole weight of your anxieties upon Him for you are His personal concern.
