“Come to me, all who are weary and heavy-burdened…”
Anyone else looking around at our world and incredulously asking, “Really though, what is going on?!”
I’ve been weighed down by the heaviness of it all; and I’ve avoided the news more than I probably should have since I want to be adequately informed. Somehow I still get the necessary information from social media and conversations with people.
Jesus spoke to me tonight his words recorded in Matthew 11:28-30 that I hope you’ll sit with in peace too.
“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.”
The peace He offers is beyond any semblance of control we believe we’re forming around our world. I’m releasing the weight of it all onto his shoulders tonight, because He’s already said it’s finished.
I may not know what is going on, but I know Who holds me through it all.
praying peace over you, lovely one,
the tall girl
