But I am lowly and in pain; let your salvation, O God, protect me. (Psalms 69:29
Many years passed, and one night the old man heard knocking on his door. He called out, "Who's there?"
"It is your son!" the voice outside replied. "My kidnappers set me free, and I have spent many years trying to find you!"
The old man yelled, "You are a fake and a cruel man. My son is dead. Leave me alone!" He would not open the door.
The pounding continued for a while, but then it stopped. The young man gave up and left.
The old man never found happiness. And he lost his son who was still living. Why? Because he was determined to hold on to the bones of the past.
May we give up the pain of our past to God, so that we can serve with joy!
Loving God, would you please take the baggage. In Jesus' name, Amen.
