As I feel anxious about my day and my life, I am reminded of the truth that I am not to carry these burdens. I am to surrender all the people I worry about to the Lord. I am to surrender my new work projects to the Lord. I am to surrender all my fears to the Lord. The Lord will perfect that which concerns me. So what do I carry? What is my purpose? My purpose is to carry Christ's light. Today, I will lay down my burdens and trust Him. I will love and encourage and serve with a grateful heart.
So, Tychicus sounds like an awesome guy. It says he was a "beloved brother", a "faithful servant" and "comforted hearts". I really don't want to be an annoying brother, lazy servant, or stress people out. I'm purposing to follow Tychicus' example today.
