Today, I woke up heavy hearted. Do you ever do that?
It wasn’t like I could pinpoint one thing that made me feel this way, but I felt it.
A heaviness in my soul.
When I feel that way, I know that I need to give whatever I am feeling to Jesus. The healer of my soul.
“Pile your troubles on God’s shoulders—He will carry your load, He will help you out.”
I don’t know how to explain it, but when I fix my eyes on Jesus, the heaviness in my heart feels lighter.
Maybe your heart is heavy today too?
Stressed from the pressures of this holiday season…
Worried about a loved one…
Concerned about your health…
Confused about what choice to make next…
Uncertain about your future…
Saddened by someone who has hurt you…
Life can throw so many things at us that sometimes it feels too much to bear.
“Don’t fret or worry, pray and the peace of God that transcends all understanding will guard your heart.”
Sometimes we get weary, and we don’t feel God working in our lives. But He is, friends. And He is working for our good. There is JOY ahead.
“The moment we get tired of waiting, God’s spirit is along side, helping us. It doesn’t matter how we pray—God knows us; better than ourselves. God works all things for the good of those who love Him.”
1 Peter 1:6
“So be truly glad there is wonderful joy ahead. Even though you have to endure many trials for a little while.”
“But me, I’m not giving up, I’m waiting for God to make things right.”
This morning, I spent time reading these beautiful words from scripture and listening to songs of Praise. God spoke to my heart, and I wanted to share them with you.
God is so Good.
I’m praying for all of you with heavy hearts. I pray that you find time to lay your burdens at the foot of the cross.
ONLY JESUS can give us the peace that our hearts desire.
We sang this song in a church we visited a few weeks ago, and I loved it so much. I wanted to share it with you today.
