“He will be very gracious unto you at the voice of your cry; when He shall hear it, He will answer you.” Isaiah 30:19
The Christmas Season is upon us, and it is a joyous time for most; however, there are some of us that find this season especially sad and lonely for we miss loved ones who have passed on. This season seems to magnify the fact that they are no longer with us.
If you find yourself in this predicament, God is waiting to hear from you. He will ease your pain, and come close to you! The Bible says, Jesus is a friend that sticks closer than a brother.
Why carry the burden of loneliness and pain when you don’t have to? Jesus died on the cross to take our sins away, but also to carry our burdens! Here’s a little poem that may help you understand.
“And shall I still the load retain
Which Thou hast offered to sustain?
No! At Thy bidding, I will flee,
And cast my burdens all on Thee!” -Unknown
I Peter 5:7 says this: “Cast all your cares upon HIM…for He cares for you…”
Put your heavy load down. Take all your burdens to the Lord…and leave them there!
