"Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest."
Daily burdens at times can be suffocating. We take on this responsibility, not only for our own issues, but for those we love. We are the sounding board for family members when we're needed most. On these days it's difficult to nurture your inner child, and you may feel resentful and out of touch. Nonetheless, you continue this frustrating juggling act, which leads to depression, fatigue, frustration, and the inability to complete the tasks at hand.
How often do we need to be reminded of Matthew's words? Why do we continue in this circus? This juggling act to test our faith? These are the days to hand everything over to God! "Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest." God promises to give us peace if we just ask. We were never asked to control individual outcomes in the first place. We are mere stepping stones in attaining God's plan for those he loves. God knows our needs; he is watching over everyone. He has everything under control.
1. Do you think of your daily household chores as a burden or a blessing? Maybe you need an online companion such as: The Fly Lady . This website offers FREE daily emails that will help organize you, and instill the importance of looking at at these chores as a blessing to those you love rather than a daily hardship.
2. Remember, during the worst of times, God sends angels. Today I was on the phone with the IRS. I spent a moment praying for rest, as Matthew stated, before I dialed the phone. On the other end I met an angel. Who would have thought it could happen with the IRS? She was kind, compassionate and added more attention to my request than other agents I've encountered. I was granted an extension, and my soul felt peace! These days solidify that I am not the only angel being called on for times of need! God remembers each of us and will send an angel- all I have to do is ask!
