Is it hard for you to sit in the quiet? I mean like really sit and not let your mind be distracted with the stress of life. Have you ever just layed there, in the quiet...Have you ever just sat and waited for God's whisper? I feel that most of the time I want to hear God's whisper, but I am not patient even to let Him speak. I become selfish and wrapped up in my own stresses...Have you ever thought to share your stress with God? I know I have thought about it many times, but never done it. But God wants to take our burdens and He wants to carry it for us.
In Matthew 11:29-30 Jesus spoke of this,"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.”
Let Him take your troubles. Sit in the silence and surrender them to Him and maybe you will see a new light in your life.
