Giving it All to You

"Come to me all you who are weary and burdened 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".
Matthew 11 v 28-30

December is a difficult month for many. Stresses and worries seem to creep to the foreground and the temptation and pressure to over-spend can be suffocating at times.  As the advent countdown draws us closer to the 'big day', we can  feel increasingly squeezed for time and subsequently our energy becomes zapped.  Or is that just me?!

Today I took half an hour out to listen to some worship music and focus on God.  It's amazing how releasing it is to take this time away from the hustle and bustle of Christmas - putting aside the presents yet to be bought, meals still unplanned and the ever-growing 'to do' list.

Accepting His invitation to 'Come', I lay in the stillness of His presence and named every burden that was weighing me down and gave it over to Him. 

Why not take 30 minutes out of your busy day to do the same? You might find this song a useful prompt....

  1. A beautiful song - and a very valuable suggestion. I forget how refreshed I feel after even a short time with Father God. Thanks for the reminder!

  2. Thank you Suzanne, I intend to do just that this week. Mich x

  3. a great reminder - thank you. It is always bizarre yet incredible how if we ringfence a bit of time with God first, then God seems to be able to create more time for us to get through everything else we need to do, but if we try to do everything else first then we rarely get it all done! xxx
