The Lord has laid many burdens on me, and I
sometimes grow weary. Then the Holy Spirit leads
me to understand that I can do nothing by myself.
All I have to be is God's obedient servant, His ready
instrument, and then I can leave every care with Him.
Then peace returns and my thoughts become free and
vigorous. My soul throws its burdens aside; runs without
weariness and walks without fainting.
I am sure, my dear fellow servant, that life will break
you unless you learn the habit of leaning on Jesus. Do
not be afraid to lean too much. There has never been a
saint blamed for possessing too much faith. There has
never been a child of God scolded by the Divine Father
for having placed too implicit a reliance on His promises.....
"Now if God so clothes the grass of the field, which today
is, and tomorrow is thrown into the oven, will He not much more
clothe you, O you of little faith?" (Matt. 6:28-30)
Give your cares to Him who cares for the ravens and for the flowers
of the field. Rest assured that He will also care for you.
