We all go through depression, I penned these words a couple months ago for all those out there who feel like giving up.
Anxiety is real and we cannot ignore it, yet Jesus offers another way: Jesus says to cast our burdens on Him and He will sustain us (Psalm 55:22). When we are bogged down by fear he invites us to trust that He is in control; enter into His presence where He promises eternal rest for our souls (Matthew 11:28-30).
When we come to Christ we can lay our burdens at His feet, and then we no longer have a reason to be anxious because we are resting securely in our Savior’s arms. My prayer is that you will turn to Jesus and let His everlasting peace strengthen you heart when it’s burning.
Will there be enough food (for us)? Amidst the coronavirus pandemic it’s been heartbreaking to see the self centeredness ingrained in each and every one of us. But Jesus told us to focus on the kingdom (not ourselves) and He will take care of ALL our needs.
“For I determined not to know any thing among you, save Jesus Christ, and him crucified. And I was with you in weakness, and in fear, and in much trembling. And my speech and my preaching was not with enticing words of man’s wisdom, but in demonstration of the Spirit and of power: That your faith should not stand in the wisdom of men, but in the power of God.” 1 Corinthians 2:2-5
God laid a song on my heart when I was seventeen years old back in 2014, “The Lamb of God”. My brother Joseph (of ServingourKing.wordpress.com) helped me make it into a Lyric video. I want to share it with you. I am so excited that it is finally here! I pray God blesses you as you find peace in the Lamb of God which taketh away the sin of the world.
