My new yard is full of camellia bushes. It's hard to tell that they are there because they've been left unkept for a very long time. They are suffering from lack of light and are bending under the weight and burden of many different kinds of vines. I'm surprised that some of them are still alive because the vines have twisted around their limbs and are almost choking them. The only way to get rid of those vines is to clip them off at the roots and carefully pull them off the plant. It's a very tedious job, but if we want to enjoy their beauty when they bloom, then it's a must. Are you tangled up and suffering with burdens because you've gone too long without care? If so, it's time to give all of those burdens to Jesus. He cares for you and wants nothing more than for you to flourish and bloom. Let Jesus cut off, the things you're suffering from, at its root and begin to remove them one by one.
Cast your burden on the LORD, and he will sustain you; he will never permit the righteous to be moved. Psalms 55:22
