Do you ever feel heavy from your transgressions? You know you aren’t doing what you should, you are slipping up constantly, and you are not doing a good job of turning it around. It is right there in your face, right in front of you, and still you do it. It may be something big, it may be something little. But no matter what it is there. Kind of like that pile of stones Jesus threw in the sea…but piled up in front of you because you can’t let Him have them yet.
But the first step is acknowledging them. Saying it. Jesus…I know what I did wrong. I know I need to get back on track. I know I am needy. I know I need you to deliver me. I know I am really bad at waiting.
And letting Him throw those stones in to the sea. Let go. Let HIM have them all. Then we find the rest and lightness we need.
