“Come unto me all who are weary and carrying heavy burdens, and I will give you rest.” Matthew 11:28
Father – Yes. I am weary. Weary of remembering to wear a mask; to wash my hands –
Thoroughly; of being restricted – not seeing friends with the ease that I used to – and my family – I miss their hugs – I miss their laughter.
Father You know. You know the deep places of my heart; those times of, ‘How much longer?’ But You invite me to come to You – to lay down the heaviness in my heart and rest in You.
Lord I come. I accept your invitation. I want the rest that You promise.
You say, ‘Be still and know that I am God.’
Father I quiet myself before You and acknowledge that You’ve got this. You know and You care. You are God. You are the one I run to. In your presence the churning in my heart is stilled. You give me peace that is beyond my understanding. You are all I need.
Father I’m sorry for ever doubting You. I’m sorry for forgetting that You are Sovereign God.
I choose to let go of all those things which trouble my mind and I take hold of You; my Refuge and my Rock. I choose to focus on Your goodness and Your love – Your provision in this season. I rest in Your presence secure in Your peace. It is here I find joy and contentment.
Thank You Father. I love You.
