Saddlebags… Then and Now

Product Image

Saddlebags…
is the word that came to me…
when I thought of all the broken…
and the heavy burdens they carry.
For the original “saddlebags”…
were used as a horse was rode…
to pack with items needed…
and even carry a heavy load.
But the word ‘saddlebags”…
is now used a different way…
in reference to extra weight…
that some women may carry today.
For the weight many have…
is an indicator of wounds inside…
and though many have been broken…
this evidence of wounds they cannot hide.
But we must let go of our pasts…
with all the hurt and pain…
then watch the transformation…
with healing and restoration we’ll gain.
For the burdens we carry…
are like a ball and chain…
just dragging us down…
so let go of all past pain.

Dear Lord, only You see the wounds deep within the hearts and souls of all who have been victimized. You see the heavy burdens of responsibility that these women carry as many have had to raise children alone and even carry the financial burdens of their entire households, with or without a spouse. Deliver all from the wounds of brokenness that are hidden within and even displayed outwardly. Bring healing and restoration to all for as the healing occurs internally, it will be displayed externally… in Jesus’ Name. Amen.
