Rested soul…

096pk

It’s wonderful to have a rested body, but even more wonderful if your soul is at rest too.

God wants us to throw all of our burdens on His shoulders,

to cast our cares upon Him,

to let Him carry the load for us.

He doesn’t want us to have tormented minds and emotions,

full of worry,

anxiety,

fear.

He wants our souls to be at ease and full of peace.

I used to have a framed scripture passage on one of the walls in my house.

When something was burdening my soul I would write it on a post it note.

I would pray and tell God that I was giving Him the burden,

then I would let it go by sticking it on the back of that framed verse.

It was a symbolic reminder that the burden was no longer on my shoulders but His.

What a blessing years later when I took that picture down,

to see all of the burdens that once seemed so huge,

that God had carried for me,

and difficult trials He had carried me through.

 

Still following,

Elizabeth
