Give It To God

“Come unto me, all ye that labour
and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.”
~Matthew 11:28

Life isn’t going the way you think it should. You’re overwhelmed. Tired. Frustrated. Nothing you do seems to solve your problems. You spiral down into self-pity and despair. You are angry with God. You’re weary.

Jesus was very specific in His instructions for when we are heaven laden with problems. He wants us to go to Him and give Him our burdens. In exchange, He will give us rest. When we stop trying to solve everything with our own logic or understanding, and we let God take over, we calm down. We don’t have to fight against anyone or anything, anymore.

You can give your burdens to Him right now. “Dear Jesus, I am tired. I can’t carry this any longer. I place it in your hands. I’ll let you carry it. Thank you.” Anytime you find yourself ruminating over a problem, stop, and give it God.
