Trading My Doubts and Fears for the Lord's Joy!!

Good Morning Friends,
Have you ever wondered what your life would be like, if you just sat your cares, worries, and doubts on the altar of the Lord? 
I have wondered.... And, I actually have begun to sit my "everything" on the His altar. The problem is that I tend to go back and stare at them! Yep! I say I'm going to leave them and I do, for a little while. But, if something or someone triggers a thought about the situation, I will sorta' move a little bit closer to the altar and look at the problem, again. However, I've come to a point in my faith, that I do not take it off of the altar, 
but I will stare at it, sometimes! LOL! 
 I don't believe this is how the Lord wants us to live. We must continuously grow our faith. Yes, we may worry, but as our faith grows, we worry less. We begin to understand how great, wonderful and powerful or Lord is. We look back and remember the many trials that He has brought us through. We begin to really live our lives, according to His Word. We begin to see others through His eyes. We begin seeing love, hope and prosperity in ourselves and others. I tell you, it is truly amazing and life-changing!  So, I encourage all of you, this morning,  to place your "everything" on His mighty altar and leave it. 
No peeking! Smiles and blessings!

Scripture to Remember:
Matthew 11:28-30  
Come to me, all who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you, and learn from me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.

Listen and Rejoice!
