"Cast your burden on the LORD,
and he will sustain you;
he will never permit
the righteous to be moved."
There seems to be so much sadness and negativity in this world these days that it almost seems impossible to find the strength you need in order to achieve your dreams but the saddest part about it is that quite a few of them are Christians who go to church every week and yet they keep this to themselves and they're scared to give their sorrows to God and exchange it for peace and joy.
No matter what has happened in your life I want you to know that God sent his son down to earth and he sacrificed his own life in order to make a way for us to join him in Heaven for an eternity. He did the hardest part and he made a way so we could be set free from all of our sins, insecurities, oppression, sorrows, stress, illnesses, shame..
He paid the price for it all because he loved us that much!
We can have joy and peace!
We can have freedom and purpose! We can have good health and peace of mind! He made a way for all of us, all we have to do is accept it and serve him and life will begin to get better.
Put your trust in God and find the rest you so desperately need!
No need to stress, He will give you rest! Choose him this day and you'll be able to smile again and your dreams will seem much closer within your reach.
So let's give it to him and go to sleep, after all..Faith makes a fine pillow.

In this life it can be difficult to get past things, we want the little house with the picket fence and the safe little family contained inside but we don't want to let go of the abuse that we've endured from a previous relationship or forgive ourselves for attempting suicide years before or allowing God to take our sorrows and depression in order to move on.
It can be difficult to let go of the past but it can only get better from here on, we have to put things in perspective like this..
"He can't hurt me anymore,
I can't hurt myself anymore,
God is my joy and my peace and I will get through this!"
That's how you can start, God knows the need even before you ask him for it but in order for things to change and to move forward you need to give those things to God and allow him to comfort your heart once more.
There isn't one thing that God can't get you through, there isn't one scar that he can't heal and there isn't one day that God can't help you through!
God only wants the best for us but we can only get there if we take that first step and ask him for help and if you don't know what your need is then ask him to reveal to you what your need is, sometimes we don't realize just how much someone or something has hurt us in the past but we need God to show that to us in order to move past it and onto better things for our lives.
"For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans for welfare and not for evil, to give you a future and a hope."

In this life we can get it so wrong, the wrong job, the wrong relationship, the wrong choice, the wrong words..but whatever mistakes are made God can make right all of them in an instance and when he does that for us he does what's best for us and reveals to us where we went wrong but at the same time shows us where we can start right this time around and he takes us to the place we're supposed to be and were supposed to be all along.
Satan tries to tell us when we make a mistake in life that we cannot turn around but we have to stay in that place and endure that but that's a lie! We can find forgiveness and freedom when we ask a loving God for forgiveness and he frees us from the guilt and the pain that once plagued our lives! We don't have to lay down in our sorrow..we can rise up and take up our crosses to follow after Jesus' calling for our lives!
We don't have to settle for the leftovers in this life..we can have something fresh, something new, something that's beneficial to our lives in every way!
God's way is best..let's lay down our burdens and allow God to give us the peace that passes all understanding and the healing that we so desperately need!
God sees every single obstacle around the corner and he even sees our mistakes but yet he loves us so much that he sent his son to become a Savior to us and to make a way for us to spend eternity with him!
God wants only the best for us, he wants us to grow in him, to learn to love like him and to continue to dedicate our lives to him daily!
