“Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. 29Take 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.”
So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.
You ever have times when everything around you just seems so out of control? Lately, I’ve been feeling that way. I know I can’t control anything in life, and I try to not be a control freak, since it will get me nowhere, but lately, a combination of things is causing a fair bit of anxiety. Things at work are weird and unstable for many, my parents are aging and every day I am reminded that I need to help them more, but feel so lost as to how, and I am concerned for myself. I am trying very hard to do things that will help me, in many ways; however, I have some things that I cannot control in my life. Frankly, I feel overwhelmed by life sometimes. I’m sure I’m not the only one.
In my prayers and in passing thoughts that I give to God I admit my weakness, especially as it relates to my inability “to deal” at times. It is in those times of great anxiety that God reminds me to “be still” and to keep my faith, because He is there with me.
He is there for you, too.
