He Carries Us

A pastor was going through a crisis. His little daughter, who was paralyzed, was sitting in her chair as he entered the house with a package for his wife. Giving his daughter a big kiss he asked, “Where is Mother?”

“Upstairs,” she replied.

“Well, I have something for her.”

“Let me carry it to Mother,” said the daughter.

“Why, Minnie dear, how can you carry this package? You cannot carry yourself.”

With a big smile, the child replied, “Oh no Papa, but if you give it to me, then I will carry the packages and you can carry me.”

God spoke softly to his heart that this was his own position. He was carrying his burden, but wasn’t the Lord also carrying him?
