To know wisdom and instruction, to understand words of insight, to receive instruction in wise dealing, in righteousness, justice, and equity; to give prudence to the simple, knowledge and discretion to the youth- Let the wise hear and increase in learning, and the one who understands obtain guidance, to understand a proverb and a saying, the words of the wise and their riddles. Proverbs 1:2-6

Burdens



Right in the middle of something hard, I cry out to God, begging HIM to take this burden from me. I can’t take it anymore, I can’t do this anymore, I don’t have it in me to continue like this. 

Gently, God says, I know you can’t, but I can. My yoke is easy and my burden is light, let me give you My strength, My grace, and My love. Just trust Me and I will see you through. I am doing a good thing, just trust Me.

*Deep breath*

If God won’t change my situation, then He needs to change me. My prayers change to, “give me contentment, grace, and wisdom. Sustain me. Teach me, Lord, how to give of myself from Your abundant grace and mercy. Show me how to bless others in the midst of this.”


Matthew 11:28-30
Come to me, all who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you, and learn from me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.”

No advice. Just a big hug. The song "When We See Christ" came to mind when I was thinking about you. Maybe it will encourage you a little bit. Prayers too.
