Living with child loss means I am already weighted down.
And when life adds more to THAT load, it isn’t long until I feel overwhelmed and anxious, frightened and weak.
Jesus invites me to give Him my burdens.
He wants me to let go of them and allow Him to do the heavy lifting because the truth is, He’s already doing it, I only have to realize it.
casting all your cares [all your anxieties, all your worries, and all your concerns, once and for all] on Him, for He cares about you [with deepest affection, and watches over you very carefully].
I Peter 5:7 AMP
I was just talking to another mom about this yesterday-the casting is for MY benefit.
Jesus is already carrying my burden,
When I try to take it back, all I do is create stress and heartache for myself.
Instead I need to lean into the truth that He is my burden-bearer, my ever present help in time of trouble.
He sees me,
and will never leave me.
So what are you toting that you need to lay down?
