“I have promised to meet all your needs according to my glorious riches. Your deepest, most constant need is for my peace. I have planted peace in the garden of your heart, where I live; but there are weeds growing there too: pride, worry, selfishness, unbelief. I am the gardener, and I am working to rid your heart of those weeds. I do my work in various ways. When you sit quietly with me, I shine the light of my presence directly into your heart. In this heavenly light, peace grows abundantly and weeds shrivel up. I also send trials into your life. When you trust me in the midst of trouble, peace flourishes and weeds die away. Thank me for troublesome situations; the peace they can produce far outweighs the trials you endure.”
- by Sarah Young in "Jesus Calling"
Lord, my heart is heavy and I am feeling overwhelmed and exhausted. I feel like I am carrying my burdens alone. I am not sure how to let you carry my burdens, so please show me how. Let me be rested and refreshed.
In Jesus’ name,
