Who satisfies?

There are something about kind words that help melt away stress, and make you feel not only lighter, but maybe even younger.  More carefree– maybe like a child–or a soaring eagle.  Renewed.  Free, untethered.  Light.

Do you ever feel like a weight truly has been lifted from your shoulders?

With each person that came to me last week, it was easier to give up the the pain and hand it over to God.  Each encounter reminded me I was worrying and fretting over things that were not for me.  They were for God.  I can’t fix those things/people.  God has to.  And I have to wait for them to turn it over to God as well.

And with each person, each revelation, I gave more to Him.  And I felt the weight leave.  I felt my shoulders truly relax.  What a benefit?

What have you handed over?  What has God resolved?  How have you felt lighter?  Think on those things today.

Go, Tell, and make disciples of all nations--spread the good news.

    WOW, you are a “person who lifted a weight off my shoulders” today!

    Read a devotional from Family Life that was about no guarantees with children. It said “if you want a guarantee, buy tires or a car battery. Children do not come with guarantees.”

    And now your post just reminded me of that! I can’t control if my children choose or reject Jesus or a relationship with me. That is for God’s to work at changing. My kids have free will and their bad choices do not mean I failed as a Mom. That is what I have trouble remembering most days!

    I am praying for you this busy Thanksgiving and Christmas season! I know I am not feeling lots of joy, and I know you may be feeling that, too. The sun is shining today, and it is to be 57 degrees, so I am praying that you feel some physical or at least spiritual Sonshine in your life today! May God bless you!
