Matthew 11:28-30 New International Version (NIV)
“Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. 29 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. 30 For my yoke is easy and my burden is light.”
ONLY GOD ~
Can mend a broken heart
There are words to say to someone who just lost a loved one. Never say you know how they feel because you don't. Never say God needed them more than you did. Never say if someone isn't a christian that God doesn't hear your prayers. These were all things said to me at 18 years old by people who went to my dad's church. I didn't liked it so much and I cried over words from people. My heart was broken and I had never seen a dead person before my dad. I know to say words like this: I'm sorry for your loss. I can't imagine your pain but I care.
Ecclesiastes 3:1-3 New International Version (NIV)
There is a time for everything,
and a season for every activity under the heavens:
2 a time to be born and a time to die,
a time to plant and a time to uproot
Genesis 2:1-3 New International Version (NIV)
Thus the heavens and the earth were completed in all their vast array. 2 By the seventh day God had finished the work he had been doing; so on the seventh day he rested from all his work. 3 Then God blessed the seventh day and made it holy, because on it he rested from all the work of creating that he had done.
I wanted to go back to the beginning of time. God created things day by day. Yet, on the seventh day, he made it holy and to rest. We can also rest in knowing God has our lives in his control. Saying yes to him, brings a new way of thinking and living. Our mindsets can be changed and our broken hearts are minded. Sometimes it doesn't happen over night, but it's a process of change.
What do you need to rest on in life or give over to God? Make the choice to do your best and allow God freedom to mold you. Each day is a learning experience and we can grow into a better person each day of life. My prayers continue for you, your family and friends.
