Looking to God When You Feel Hopeless
“Come to me, all of you who are tired from carrying heavy loads and I will give you rest.” – Matthew 11:28
In January, I designed a journal for a women’s retreat that I attended, with this verse on the cover (see above). Little did I know that this verse would resonate so loudly with me. I have gone back to this verse over and over this past year. As I have gone on this journey through all of my health issues, I have been carrying a heavy load. Things were better for little while and now I am traveling through the darkness again.
I have felt hopeless and tired.
That’s why I keep coming back to this verse. God tells us to come to him when things get too hard and He will give us rest. So why do I continue to try to carry this burden on my own?
Isaiah 40:31 says “But those who trust in the Lord for help will find their strength renewed. They will rise on wings like eagles; they will run and not get weary; they will walk and not grow weak”
I need His strength. I do not want weakness or to be weary. I want to walk, run… soar.
