Give it All to Him

I had a bad day yesterday. Things at home were tense, and all the responsibilities I have and deadlines I have to meet didn't help the situation. I must confess, I got a bit downhearted. 
We all have days like that. Sometimes, even our whole life seems like that. It feels like we have more on our shoulders than we can carry. Even on the "normal" days, all our worries weigh us down, and we don't know how much longer we'll be able to go on carrying these burdens. 

Well, I've found a remedy. Yesterday, I sat down for a short time to pray about what was happening, and I remembered a passage in the gospel of Mattew: "Come to me, all you who are weary and overburdened, and I will give you rest. Shoulder my yoke 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." 

Just read that passage again. Slowly. When I thought of that passage, I realised that Jesus was telling me to switch burdens with him. I only have to carry his light burden, while he carries my heavy one.  So that's what I did. I just gave my burden to him. I gave him everything that was bothering me, all the stress, all the responsibilities, all the tension in my home. I gave it all to him and asked him to carry it - because it's too heavy for me. When I did that, felt so much better. I felt like there was nothing to worry about because God was taking care of me no matter what happened.

I'd like to ask you right now, where ever you are, what ever you're going through, to just stop and do what I did. Give all your burdens to Jesus. Every problem that you have, every heart ache, everything you're worried about. Give everything to him. Believe me, you'll feel much better for it.

Lots and lots of love to yas all!
God bless,

    "...and you will find rest for your souls."
    It has always been somewhat of a mystery to me, that a spirit can become weary; our souls do need rest. And that can be found (unlike that of a physical nature) in any place, at any time.
    Christ takes our burdens, and also carries us.
