for everyone

Jesus came for everyone.

One scripture that has been going through my mind lately....

Jesus said: “Come to Me, all who are weary and heavy-laden, 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 SHALL FIND REST FOR YOUR SOULS.  For My yoke is easy, and My load is light”. Matthew 11:28-29.

Jesus didn't say that he would give SOME people rest.  He didn't say he would give only those that deserve it rest.  Shoot... Jesus, didn't come to heal the healthy.... he came to heal the sick.  He said,  "I will give you rest."  That's anyone!  

In trying to glorify God I want to be like him.  his yoke is easy, and his load is light.  I pray that every morning....  that he will give me his rest;  I pray that he will remind me throughout the day that HE has already taken my burdens.  I love him.  

I serve a mighty God.  I reach out to people because of my joy in Christ.  I pray for people often.  I love people out of my love from Christ... he has enabled me!  And, he has enabled you!  

Galations 5:1 says, "It was for freedom that Christ set us free; therefore, keep standing firm and do not be subject again to a yoke of slavery."

Steven Curtis Chapman - Do Everything (Lyrics)

Story of my life.
It's where I'm at.  100%.


Praying for a friend tonight and thought of this song. It's super old, but I believe, super annointed.

And, it was around the same time that I saw this picture in my email...

And, I thought... Do I allow God to heal the wounds in my own life as easily as my son allowed his grammy to heal the wounds in his teddy bear? Well, he was a bit resistant... he never did end up letting her fix his teddies ear. So, maybe we are a lot like my son. As I look at this picture I remind myself to let go and let God... he is our Healer! and he is Good!
