I heard the voice…

I heard the voice of Jesus say, “Come unto me and rest; lay down, thy weary one, lay down thy head upon my breast.” I came to Jesus as I was, weary worn and sad; I found him in a resting place and He has made me glad.” — Horatius Bonar 1846

Unload Your Heart

Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. – Phil 4:6

Tell God all that is in your heart, as one unloads one’s heart, it’s pleasures and its pains, to a dear friend. Tell Him your troubles, that He may comfort you; tell Him your joys, that He may sober them; tell Him your longings, that He may purify them; tell Him your dislikes, that He may help you conquer them; talk to Him of your temptations, that He may shield you from them; show Him the wounds of your heart, that He may heal them; lay bare your indifference to good, your depraved tastes for evil, your instability. Tell Him how self-love makes you unjust to others, how vanity tempts you to be insincere, how pride disguises you to yourself and others.

If you thus pour out all your weaknesses, needs, troubles, there will be no lack of what to say….talk out of the abundance of your heart..

Knowing the will of God comes through a day-by-day walk with Him and a willingness to be led by Him. This will keep you on the right route through life, and it will be a great joy to your heart.

Of Umbrellas

You and I are blessed with all spiritual blessings in the heavenlies in Jesus Christ. However there are some


connected to that also. God loves you and wants to shower you with His blessings. But you can put up an umbrella of indifference, you can put up an umbrella of sin, you can put up an umbrella if stepping out of the will of God. When you do that, the sunshine of His love won’t get through to you. You must put down your umbrella to experience His spiritual blessings. – J Vernon McGee
