Weight

Tiredย 

Beat down

Run into the ground

How shall I face the day…

With this weight that hinders my pace? 

Struggling 

Worn out

My soul thirsts in this drought 

Where shall this weary way lead?

I need some rest and peace.

Roses

I really really needed this song. I’ve had my eye on it for a while now because Mathew Parker has some great music. However, I kept passing it by. Why? Who knows. I keep looking at life’s thorns instead.

I must admit, that when you feel, some days, as if you’re engulfed in thorns it’s not easy to stop and smell the roses. But we need to encourage one another to try, and ask God for that help.

Jesus: Our Master (Lord), Burden Bearer, and Guide โค

“Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy and my burden is light.โ€

Matthew 11: 28-30

“The Lord decides what a person does. So no one can understand what his life is about.”

Proverbs 20:24

“The Lord can control a Kings mind as easily as He controls a river. He can direct it as He pleases.”

Proverbs 21:1

And We Become Living Sacrifices โค

For it is Christโ€™s love that fuels our passion and holds us tightly, because we are convinced that He has given His life for all of us. This means all died with Him, so that those who live should no longer live self-absorbed lives but lives that are poured out for Himโ€”the one who died for us and now lives again.

2 Corinthians 5:14-15

  2. I agree, it can be difficult to smell the roses when we are tangled up in the thorns. The way you put that is perfect. I have been dealing with many ups and downs, for different reasons. I am so thankful we can hand our burdens to Jesus. That helps. But I have found that it has to be a conscious decision. Prayers and blessings, dear friend! ๐ŸŒน

      1. I want to send you a big bunch of roses in every shade of colour, from that rich blood red to the purest white. Each with it’s own perfect scent. For the joy set before you…
