Sometimes it feels like I’m carrying the world on my shoulders. And no matter how hard I try, I just can’t seem to unload the heaviness of my heart. Sometimes all I know to do is just rest in his arms.
“Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy and my burden is light" Matthew 11:28-30 (NIV)
Jesus is my strength. When I don't know what to say - I just don't say a thing. That's what is so wonderful about my relationship with Him. He will always take me just as I am. He will always be here for me - Always.
The life that God has blessed me with is precious. I don't always see it that way but I know in my heart that I am truly blessed. It has been many years since I surrendered my whole heart to God. I have grown closer to Christ and will continue to grow in Him till the day I die. I wish with all my heart that my husband would join me - but that's not my call. That is not my territory - it's God.
From our knees to the facing of a new day we do not stand alone. I don't want to stand alone. Without the knowledge of Him in our lives we would be defeated with the spirit of lonliness. And let me tell you that the enemy brings on the battle of lonliness to my door every day and every night. The stronger my desire for my spouse to take on the Spiritual leadership in my home the harder Satan pushes emptiness in my heart. I don't know where you are on the battle field but I am in the middle of it and I can't aford to go into battle without my sword - through prayer - through the reading and hearing of the Word.
Come Unto Me
My daughter was upset not too long ago and she was very sad and distrought. It was one of those moments when she didn't want to be approached and no words could be of any comfort. Her heart was sad and heavy. I didn't know what to say. I didn't try to say anything special. I sat down next to her. Gently took her hand and simply said "It's going to be alright"
My friend, you may be going through a rough time or you may be on the mountain top - but I want you to know that through your personal relationship with Jesus - it's going to be alright.
Rest in him and fill your heart with His words. Share His love in your home and share it outside of your home. Let God do what He has planned for you and trust Him through this journey.
Look for what God has for you each day and seek His face. Starting your day with Jesus and being mindful of His presence with you through your day - not only will you be blessed but those around will be blessed too.
"The Lord bless you and keep you, the Lord make his face shine upon you and be gracious to you; the Lord turn his face toward you and give you peace." Numbers 6:24-26
