The common remark, “You look like you have the weight of the world on your shoulders” is how it may feel to be burdened with inquiries. Living in sin and giving into the desires of the flesh becomes overwhelming and causes entrapment (Read Hebrews 12:1). It also leads to guilt and shame which may reflect in our mannerisms. Do we want to bear this burden or should we confess our sins to the Lord and turn away from them? When we choose the latter, it will lift the burdens and we can continue with our life’s journey without being weighed down. As Believers, we need not bear the heavy burden of sin because our faithful God is able to forgive us and cleanse us from unrighteousness (Read 1 John 1:9).
