The U-Haul For Worry

If you’ve got a load to carry, the C-5 military transport plane is for you. This big bird can carry thirty-six fully loaded cargo pallets at 10,000 pounds each, 270 passengers, six transcontinental buses, two M-1 tanks, seven helicopters, and a 74-ton mobile bridge.

It’s the pack rat’s ultimate U-Haul!

I was thinking about the King Kong of cargo as I reviewed a few months of my journal: Headaches, heartaches, grand plans, dashed dreams, an escalator of ups and downs and enough worries to fill a suitcase. As I sat reflecting on the pages of my past, it hit me—God has carried it all. Peter’s words are soooo true!

Humble yourselves, therefore, under the mighty hand of God so that at the proper time he may exalt you, casting all your anxieties on him, because he cares for you. Be sober-minded; be watchful. Your adversary the devil prowls around like a roaring lion, seeking someone to devour. Resist him, firm in your faith, knowing that the same kinds of suffering are being experienced by your brotherhood throughout the world. And after you have suffered a little while, the God of all grace, who has called you to his eternal glory in Christ, will himself restore, confirm, strengthen, and establish you. To him be the dominion forever and ever. Amen.  1 Peter 5:6-11 NLT

The C-5 is big, but God is bigger. He invites you to test his cargo load. It's limitless! So go ahead—whatever has you burdened--throw it on him.

  • Flirting with failure? Put your load on him!
  • Tiptoeing around trouble? Put your load on him!
  • Overwhelmed with frustration? Put your load on him!
  • Not sure which road to take? Put your load on him!
  • Concerned? Lonely? Hurt? Bitter?  Put your load on him!

God is the U-Haul for worry, and unlike the C-5, he cares about what happens to you!
