An amazing Godincidence!

Today, I led the opening session at the EBA Ministers Conference and as I prayed and prepared I felt it was right to come prepared give everyone a large stone to symbolize their burdens. When I arrived at the venue, I noticed that someone else had already set out some stones around the room and when I talked with the worship leaders for the conference they had actually come with the same idea.

What an amazing coincidence Godincidence!

We invited people to hold their stones and to think about the burdens they were carrying and then we gave them the opportunity to come and to lay their stones down to symbolize that they were giving their burdens to God.

God really does want all of us to be willing to give him our burdens, cares and anxieties.

Are we willing to let them go or will we continue to try to carry them alone?

I am praying for many more Godincidences and that God would continue to surprise me as I see more and more of what he is up to.

As you think about laying down your burdens you might find this video helpful.
