Let Go and Let God

Jesus knows what it's like to be tired. He got so tired travelling and preaching that He took his disciples and went across to the other side of a lake just to get some rest. And His disciples were so tired, EVERY ONE went to sleep when Jesus went off to pray. I also suspect Jesus was tired when He flared His temper and overturned the moneychangers tables in the temple. Because Jesus knows what it's like to be totally spent and tired, He wants to help us feel better. Jesus said, "Come to me who are heavy laden and I will give you rest." He wants you to rest in Him, turn things over to God, and let HIM do all the work. That's all He ask. We always try to make things harder on ourselves by trying to do everything all on our own. Remember the last time you tried moving a big piece of furniture by yourself and how hard it was? Wasn't it easier when you asked/got help? Life is the same way. And Jesus is the ultimate helper. So, next time life seems just to hard, stop and ask yourself, "Am I letting God help me, or am I trying to it all by myself?" Again I say, "Let go and let God." Love, Beau
