Hope beyond the burdens

b a c k p a c k • /ˈbakˌpak/

noun : backpack; plural noun
a bag with shoulder straps that allow it to be carried on one’s back.

Ever since, I am always into brown colors (bcos this is one of my favorite colors aside from teal), leathers and of course, backpacks. When I was in grade school I always use backpacks when carrying my notebooks and other school supplies. Would you imagine that a grade 2 student can carry 10 books and 10 notebooks not mentioning extra clothes and pack lunch? And later in college, I found out that it result to having scoliosis which can be treated only through bracing or surgery. By the way, thanks to our Kuya Roger and Kuya Abet, our school driver and staff who always assist me. 😉

In this life, we are also carrying our own backpacks. Some are heavy, while some are light. Some can carry it on their own, while others cannot. Are you carrying a heavy load right now? Are you carrying a heavy heart at this moment? If so, join me in this prayer:

Father, my heart is heavy. I feel like I have to carry the burden alone. Words like “overwhelmed,” “distraught,” “exhausted” seem to describe where I am. I am not sure how to let you carry my heavy load, so please show me how. Take it from me. Let me rest and be refreshed so that my heart won’t be so heavy in the morning. In Jesus’ name. Amen.

Always remember that you are not on your own. Always ask for a sister or brother in Christ to guide and pray for your journey in life. And if you feel like you don’t have one, remember that Jesus is always with you. He is more than a friend that you can count on.

In His grip of grace,


Read: Ps. 55:22; Is. 66:9; Eph. 6:10
