We at times think we just need to buck up, grit our teeth, and take what life dishes out, but our Lord desires to help us in every situation we find our self in. He wants to hear and answer our prayers.
Empty it all
Empty yourself of everything that holds you back.
Every burden carried is a hindrance- in fact;
Worry over loved ones steals away your peace;
As you carry it, its weight will increase.
Fear of the future, even seemingly small weights of unrest,
Will cause you to fall short of God’s best.
Things that occupy your mind, that you do not share,
Causes you some harm, that as yet you are unaware.
Empty it all; place your whole life in Jesus’ hands;
Then you will experience the peace meant for man.
Place your heavy heart on the altar as a sacrifice
Any encumbrances quickly push aside.
God’s approval will shine bright on your life;
For great is the love between the bride and Christ.
Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you: not as the world giveth, give I unto you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid.
