There I was, feeling emotions I didn't want to feel.
Feeling frustrated. Feeling alone. Feeling like I wanted to give up.
Yet knowing the truth. That God is good. That I am a conqueror. That God's plans are always good and His thoughts are always full of love and hope.
But I wasn't feeling it.
So, I asked Him: Lord, You need to speak it. You need to speak directly to my soul. I need to hear it from You.
And that's when the song I was listening to ended and a new one began. One I'd heard only once, but one I needed to hear right at that moment.
The title? Lay It All Down
And that's what God spoke. Directly to my heart.
His thoughts. His voice. His words.
Sandra, you were never meant to carry the weight of the world. And you were never meant to worry your way through life. Bring it all to Me. Lay it all at My feet.
And as He spoke, I cried. I let it all out. And I laid it all down. One more time, at the feet of the One who knows. At the feet of the One who sees. At the feet of the One who loves.
And so today, I encourage you.
If there's anything you're carrying that's not yours - maybe it's worry or anxiety or strife, maybe it's a medical diagnosis or a financial situation - w
hatever it is, I encourage you. L
ay it down. At His feet.
He wants to take it.
You don't have to ask twice and you
have to beg.
He's right there.
He'll take it.
And you'll be free.
Free to be you.
Free to be joyful.
Free to be peaceful.
Free to be
Free to be free.
It is for freedom that Christ has set us free. Stand firm, then, and do not let yourselves be burdened again by a yoke of slavery. Galatians 5:1
