Last week this Devotional caught my eye in my Inbox and I keep coming back to it probably because I am feeling so weary.....I love what the author says.....
“COME unto me all you who are weary and heavy burdened and I will give you rest…for your souls.” Matthew 11:28
C – CAST your concerns
“Cast all your anxiety on him because he cares for you.” 1 Peter 5:7
Believe He cares. Tell Him your questions, your disappointment, your lack of faith.
O – OPEN your heart
“Don’t worry about anything; instead, pray about everything. Tell God what you need, and thank him for all he has done.” Phil 4:6 (NLT)
Ask His Holy Spirit to bring you courage, strength, and wisdom. Tell Him your physical needs too. Admit your doubts to Him. He understands you.
M – MAKE REQUEST
“Let us therefore come boldly unto the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy, and find grace to help in time of need.” Hebrews 4:16 (KJV)
Lay aside your idea of solutions and ask God to give you what He knows you need. Thank Him for the help He will send.
E – EXPECT
“May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.” Romans 15:13
Breathe. His Spirit is there to guide you. Your trust will grow and, amazingly, His peace and joy will flow over you and even spill out around you.
I love that I can COME and God's Spirit truly fills and overflows out of this cracked cup......
