Every Blessing Comes With An Extra Burden

Quotes about blessings and burdens

The Blessings and The Burdens

There is something you always prayed for. That special job, a promotion, just about anything. Finally, you got it! Yes! God answered your prayer, you have been blessed!

Now, say for instance you prayed to have a child and you got pregnant, but during the pregnancy you experienced terrible morning sicknesses and sometimes you can hardly get yourself out of bed. What do you do?

Do you complain? Feel sorry that you got pregnant? No, you should live with it and accept it because it’s what you prayed for and if God knew that you were not capable of enduring the burden to carry that child he would not have blessed you.

Same with a promotion, the burden of getting a promotion may mean spending more time at work with more responsibilities but at the end of the day it is all for your own good because it means more income and that you have been blessed!

You see, sometimes we are blessed tremendously but with each blessing there comes an extra burden. This type of burden is nothing that we can’t handle. Anything that we are blessed with the burden that comes with it is something that we can handle.

As long as we are favoured by God he will keep blessing us in many ways than one. Therefore we should not let him feel sorry about blessing us by complaining about the burdens.

The truth is, as long as we are growing our burdens will never go away and the bigger the blessings the greater our burdens will be.

So in all things let us handle our burdens wisely and give thanks to the Almighty for his blessings.

    1. No, I do not have a single bible quote but there are many stories in the bible that inspired me to write this.
      The main one however, was the story of Saul and David. David was chosen and anointed by God because he was highly favored in the eyes of God. But with that blessing David had a burden to bear because Saul became jealous of him and wanted to kill him. So David had to be on the run….and the story goes on. But remember now that God knows everything that will happen to all of us, so when he anointed David he knew that he would be opposed by Saul and he also knew that David could handle the opposition. That’s the way I looked at it.
      1st Samuel chapter 16 speaks about the blessing and chapter 19 speaks about how Saul tried to kill David which I called the burden.

      Take note however; I am not a bible scholar but that’s where I get my inspirations from most times.

      Thank you and I’m glad that you found it interesting.

      1. i appreciate your connections here! i teach kids in Sunday School and yes the relationship between David and Saul is very accurately portrayed here, both were given opportunities to serve God truthfully and each faced consequences when they did not. Love your motivation Dehan!
