Dr. Edsel Bone shared a story once about a man that was doing some shopping in the grocery store and his small son was closely following him. The boy was carrying a large basket and the father was loading it with one item after another. He put in canned goods, sugar, flour, meat and a variety of vegetables. A customer who was watching began to feel sorry for the youngster, thinking his load was becoming too heavy for him. Walking up behind him she said quietly, "That is a big load for a little chap like you to carry isn't it?" The boy turned to her as if surprised by her question. Then he smiled and said, "Oh, don't worry, my dad knows how much I can carry!" Contrary to what many of God's people think, our heavenly Father also knows our load limit and understands precisely how much each of us can endure. For every added load that seems to take us to our limit, our Heavenly Father has considered it's weight and has also offered Himself as our strength while under the load. Isn't it good to know that our Lord is alert to our individual needs and limits?
Hearken unto the voice of my cry, my King, and my God; for unto thee I will pray. Psalm 5:2
