This elephant is walking around with a bunch of hay on her back. Does she know that? Maybe it's for a snack later, so she won't have to come back to the front of the pen? Or is it to keep the flies and bugs off?
I know,....the other elephant snuck up behind her and gently put it on her back while she was sleeping. Now she walks in front of the "hayed" elephant, so she can't see her snickering.
"Pile your troubles on God's shoulders--he'll carry your load, he'll help you out." Psalm 55:22 (Message)
Is my pile of hay obvious to others and not to me? What burden do I feel I need to keep close, for security, or because "I can handle it," instead of placing it on God's shoulders?
Father, help me shake off the hay and walk confidently next to you.
