Roll it away!

 
Hi, friends!
 
How are your bowling skills? Are you in the 300 club? In the “gutter?” Or somewhere in between?
 
I’m in the gutter club. Well, maybe a little bit higher than that. 😉 Seriously, though, I’m not that great at it. I don’t practice; I don’t make it a priority. Even my grade-school children are better at it than I am.

How are your bowling skills in life? Do you hang on to the ball?
 

  • Worries
  • Career
  • Family
  • Illness
  • Plans

 
Do you run after them down the lane? Or do you roll them away and let them go?
 
Listen to this verse from the Bible:
 

 
Commit to the LORD everything you do. Then your plans will succeed. (Proverbs 16:3 NIrV)
 

 
What does that verse have to do with bowling? Everything.
 
When we commit our lives to God—our hurts; our circumstances; the things that stress us out; our plans, we roll them away to Him, literally. That’s what the Bible says in its original wording.
 
Here are other translations of the same verse:
 

 
“Roll unto Jehovah thy works, And established are thy purposes” (YLT).
 
“Roll your works upon the Lord [commit and trust them wholly to Him; He will cause your thoughts to become agreeable to His will, and] so shall your plans be established and succeed” (AMP).
 

 
Can you visualize it? Can you feel the heaviness of the ball? Can you feel your body lifting as you let it go? Can you see God waiting for it at the end of the lane, cheering you on?
 
 

You can do it! Roll it to me! I’ll take care of it!

 
 
Today, I want to encourage you: Roll it away to Him—all your cares, plans, pursuits. You might wobble a bit as you let the ball go. It might go straight, or it might veer to the left or to the right. It doesn’t matter, as long as you roll it to Him. As you watch it roll away down the lane, your mind and heart will become fixed on Him, immovable, established, calm, at peace.
 
He will take it from there. Just roll it away!
