“Can all your worries add a single moment to your life?” (Matthew 6:27, New Living Translation)


we all worry. we’re all plagued by it in some way, shape, or form. it affects us all in some way, shape, or form. and we all deal with it in some way, shape, or form.

we worry about our lives and the lives of our children or family and friends. we worry about our jobs and incomes. we worry about our image. we worry about what others think. we worry about all kinds of things.

we don’t have to, you know. we can be worry-free; we can be unburdened.

please note, this is not a call to being irresponsible and care-free. it’s a call to being worry-free; unburdened.

read through the Gospels. Jesus had a few things to say about worry.

a great commentary on worry and living life unburdened is Chris Tiegreen’s new book UNBURDENED: the secret to letting God carry the things that weigh you down. 

the book is a great read. easy to follow; easy to understand. it’s part commentary on scripture/part testimonial/part autobiographical.

Tiegreen speaks to the roots of our problems and trust issues. he offers suggestions and soloutions for working through the problems and situations that weigh us down. we need to change our perspectives. we need to let go of things. we need to praise and bask in the presence of God in our lives.

*NOTE: Tyndale Publishing gave me a free copy of UNBURDENED for a review posting on my blog. For more information check out The Tyndale Blog Network.


Happy Canada Day!!!
