not yours

sweet child,

you are carrying things
that are not yours
to carry.

I did not make your back
strong enough to bear
such a weight.

I never created your heart
to be able to shoulder
that kind of burden.

you are fighting battles
I haven’t equipped you
with weapons to win.

you’re taking on things
I have not provided the
time or abilities
to accomplish.

your soul longs for peace
but your determination
is set on never giving up
…striving
…trying
…pushing

come over here
and let Me begin to
unload the weight
unravel the anxiety
untangle the confusion.

come to Me, sweet child, and I promise your soul rest…

Matthew 11:28-30 28 Then Jesus said, “Come to me, all of you who are weary and carry heavy burdens, and I will give you rest. 29 Take my yoke upon you. Let me teach you, because I am humble and gentle at heart, and you will find rest for your souls. 30 For my yoke is easy to bear, and the burden I give you is light.”
