At times in my life I have struggled with fear, insecurity, anxiety, depressive type behavior, and anger. It comes and goes. It sucks because I am truly a happy person, I have a huge heart, and I love to be a light to others. I don’t understand it, but I know it is the enemy trying to draw me away from Gods love, and me being used for the Kingdom of God.
Over the years God has shown me how to cope with it, and I continue to give it back to Him. The Bible say, “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, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke fits perfectly, and the burden I give you is light.” Matthew 11:28-30
I have learned to take my burdens to the cross. I literally speak it out and say “Jesus take this from me right now, and replace it with more of you.” It is tough for me to lay my burdens down at times, but I know it is what I need to do every time I struggle because I do not want to remain in that place of feeling stuck. It’s a dark and scary place, and I rather remain in the light with Jesus.
Why am I sharing this? I am sharing this because I know there are others out there like me. You may have a few things that are different, but you can take unlimited different things to the cross. You do not have to stay in that place.
God wants to take your burdens away form you. That’s why he sent his son to die for you. You might even think to yourself am I worthy of Gods love. The answer is “Yes You Are.” God is crazy about you, and will always be crazy about you. He just wants us to continue to run back into His arms, so we can feel his rest and light pour into us.
Prayer to Pray: Jesus my burdens are yours. Take them from me, and pour your light into me. I lay my junk at the cross Father. Make me more like you, and cleanse me from the inside out. I need you father. In Jesus name. Amen.
