Wow, don’t we all need this right now. Rest in the loving arms of our Saviour, Jesus Christ.
by Hazel Straub
My Dearest Child,
Unload and cast all the heavy burden of worries, fretting, and all anxiety that you have carried, onto me. It is time to release all heaviness and all your troubles and concerns, to me, Daddy God.
Cease striving, struggling, staggering and working so hard, in your own strength. I am calling you to rest in me, while I work on your behalf. Relax and snuggle close, resting your head over my heart. In my presence, find peace, provision, refreshment, and restoration.
Love you so much,
“Are you weary, carrying a heavy burden? Then come to me. I will refresh your life, for I am your oasis. Simply join your life with mine. Learn my ways and you’ll discover that I’m gentle, humble, easy to please. You will find refreshment and rest in me.” (Matthew 11:28-29 TPT)
