**I accidentally posted the last post unfinished! I finished it and so now it makes much more sense! 🙂


Today I have had a burden.

I have felt the compassion for another person rise up in my heart.

I have felt the concern.

I have felt the overwhelming desire for everything to be right in that person’s life.

I have felt urgency for God’s will to be done.

For God’s voice to be heard.

For God’s heart to be seen.

I have felt love overtake me and cause me to say, “Oh, God!”

When I feel these things, only one thing can be next.

For prayer’s to bubble forth from my mouth.

To turn all that I feel into intercession for that person.

Because I KNOW only One person can answer these things arising in my heart

I can ONLY call on God, the Creator and Sustainer of all things, to make things right.

So today, my heart is heavy and burdened. So I am giving my burden to Him!

He loves this person more than I do. He wants all of the things I am asking for more than I do.

So have Your way, God!

I love that I can feel the burden for another person and pray and know that things can change!

Are you pouring out your burdens before Him?

Matt. 11:28-30 says “Come to Me, all who are weary and heavy-laden, and I will give you rest. Take My yoke upon you and learn from Me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For My yoke is easy and My burden is light.”

This is a verse that I was meditating on for one of my classes, Cultivating Intimacy. The assignment was to meditate on a verse and then to write a paper on it. You can read my very unprofessional paper at the bottom 🙂

But I am really moved by the words that come out of Jesus’ mouth. He says “and you will find rest for your souls.” Wow! This is an amazing promise! Our soul is made up of our mind, will and emotions. So my mind, can be at rest. Many times my thoughts are crazy! I am thinking so many different things and it causes me to worry and to stress. But my mind can be at rest! My will can be at rest. Usually my will wants to do whatever it wants and not what the Lord wants. I have to fight it, its my flesh rising up and trying to come against the Spirit. But my will can be at rest, in Jesus’ will! My emotions can be at rest! My emotions are the craziest out of all three. They usually are all over th place and everything affects them. But they can be at rest.

This is so encouraging! In Jesus I find the rest that I need! I am trusting in this, even at times when I am moving in my own flesh and I’m not resting, its because I’m not allowing myself to. If I come to Jesus, I will find rest for my soul! Woohoo!

Bring rest to my soul Jesus! I love you and thank you for it!
