We can face things in life that do not have a simple answer. We can try to ignore the situation, stifle the pain and pretend that everything is just fine. However, things that we bury do not die, they just fester and eventually come to the surface - usually at the wrong time.
When life is hard, we can remember that we have an everlasting hope. We can come to the throne room of grace in time of need. God loves us so much that He sent His precious son Jesus to earth for us, so we could forever be connected to Him.
Jesus lived the overcoming victorious life for us, died on the cross as us and was raised from the dead for our justification. Now we can exchange everything in life that tries to drag us down for Jesus’ light and easy yoke.
As we cultivate our relationship with the living God, we can bring our trauma, pain, sorrow, sadness, depression and anxiety to Him in prayer; and in exchange receive His hope, healing, joy, peace, wholeness, sense of well-being and an ongoing expectation of good.
Matthew 11:28-30 - (NASB) - Come to Me, all who are weary and heavy-laden, and I will give you rest. “Take My yoke upon you and learn from Me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and find rest for your souls. For My yoke is easy and My burden is light.”
