I feel like a hypocrite
I am not
that I overslept today~
because I didn't sleep,
because my brain would not shut down,
because I couldn't stop thinking about
that has hurt me deeply.
Even though the words~
"Let go and Let GOD"
"Be THANKFUL in all things"
"GOD will work all things for good"~
also run through my mind,
that one thing is still becoming all consuming~
because I am baffled,
because I don't understand,
so how can I be
for something that I don't want to be
Hey, I am just being honest
GOD knows our hearts
& HE knows what I am feeling and thinking.
Tears fill my eyes
as I am just plain ole weary
but then I hear the words~
"Come to ME all who are weary"
"to tire; to exhaust or get tired through overuse or great strain or stress."
overuse or great strain.
Thinking and rethinking things is overuse.
I love how the Message version of the bible explains this weariness~
“Are you tired? Worn out? Burned out on religion? Come to ME.
Get away with ME and you’ll recover your life. I’ll show you how to take a real rest.
Walk with ME and work with ME—watch how I do it.
Learn the unforced rhythms of grace.
I won’t lay anything heavy or ill-fitting on you.
Keep company with ME
and you’ll learn to live freely and lightly.” Matthew 11:28
"A simple "thank you" shows that we recognize we've received something that the giver was under no obligation to give." (Mary Kassian)
stands with HIS outstretched arms
HE wants to bestow upon us
a rest that transcends all understanding
HE transcends all understanding.
Can I say
Thank You God
at this moment and mean it~
HE did it again
in the midst of my weariness.
Are you weary?
What is of great strain or stress in your life right now?
Can you be
not because of "the what" that makes you weary
but because there is
who just wants
you and I
to come to HIM
HE can carry the burden
HE can carry you
HE wants to.
There now is a
smile on my face
and on my heart
Come to ME~
"Give all your worries and cares to GOD, for HE cares about you."
I Peter 5:7
