Mound Visits, 7/6/17

Many times I carry anxiety, stress, worries and fears that rob me of peace and productivity. I know better. I’ve heard many sermons on these topics and I’ve read many quotes and even Bible verses telling me how not to do this. I’ve heard people who “have it all together” tell me that worry is a sin. That always gives me peace! LOL. May I, with tongue in cheek, say that those people who have it “all together” have no need for Jesus. During these times of anxiety and stress, Jesus eventually becomes very real to me, for He says “Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, 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 will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy and my burden is light.”
Matthew 11:28-30
Jesus doesn’t condemn me, neither does he tell me how small my faith is. Instead, He says, “come, I will give you rest. I will carry your burden. I will carry you.”
