Many of you reading this are in pieces. You are hurting and do not know how to put your lives, your emotions, back together. When the storms rage in our lives and we become so very weary, calling out to God does not require a detailed prayer. It does not require that we even know what to say or what to ask God to do! It just requires our heart to turn to Him. It is letting go – and letting God. We have to our pride or need to “handle” our life is what keeps the heaviness of burdens on our own shoulders and the confusion in our spirit.
Then Jesus said, “Come to me, all of you who are weary and carry heavy burdens, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you. Let me teach you, because I am humble and gentle at heart, and you will find rest for your souls.For my yoke is easy to bear, and the burden I give you is light.” Matthew 11:28-30
Do we hold God back from being my LORD and Savior by trying to solve our problems and live our lived without being totally dependent on Him? Do we invite Him to share most of our lives but tell Him “not to bother” with other parts that we should be able to handle?
Let me encourage you like I do myself to want to be strong and wise. We can do that by leaning on Jesus. we can do that by seeking the counsel and wisdom of His Holy Spirit. Every day. Several times a day!
Take time today or tonight and Let it go. Cast all your burdens upon God because – He loves you (1 Peter 5:7). Simple. Straightforward. See how God works. And then, give thanks. There is nothing we can do to earn God’s love and help.
Have a wonderful day in His presence as you let go of your burdens and give them to God. Love you all in Christ. Please share this blog with others and I pray others will be encouraged in their walk with Jesus!
