Think on these things

When I was little, the family room was downstairs and my bedroom was upstairs.  At night when it was time for bed and I was tired, I loved for my dad to carry me to my room.  It felt so good to be carried--to not have to walk up those stairs.  But time went by and there came a day when I held up my arms and said, "Carry me?"  and my dad said, "I can't.  You're too big now.  You have to walk up by yourself."
Listen to whom I have upheld since you were conceived, and have carried you since your birth.  Even to your old age and gray hairs I am he, I am he who will sustain you.  I have made you and I will carry you; I will sustain you and I will rescue you.  (Isaiah 46:3-4)
Our heavenly Father has upheld us since we were conceived.  He has carried us since we were born and he will carry us even when we are old.  Are you weighed down with burdens?  He will sustain you (def. to give support or relief to, to support the weight of)  You will never be too heavy for Him.  He has made you and he will carry you.  And it feels so good to be carried.
