Thought to share: I AM not militant, demanding that you never feel anxious, stressed or pain. I AM not disappointed in you when emotions surge through your heart and overwhelm you. I do not expect you to be robotic and never feel. Instead, I AM compassionate towards you, inviting you to give ME your weighty, negative, gut-wrenching emotions. You were not designed to carry those. Give them to ME, and in exchange, I will give you peace, relief and rest.
Matthew 11:28 (TPT) Are you weary, carrying a heavy burden? Then come to Me. I will refresh your life, for I am your oasis.
1Peter 5:7 (TPT) Pour out all your worries and stress upon Him and leave them there, for He always tenderly cares for you.
Jeremiah 31:25 (Msg) I’ll refresh tired bodies; I’ll restore tired souls.
