Help for overload

Ever feel like you're burned out?
Stick a fork in you - you're done.
There are hamburgers that are less fried than you.
That's when you - and all of us - need to turn to the best source of energy and strength - our Lord.
The Scriptures say he never sleeps or slumbers.
And he cares about the things that matter to us.
Feeling used?
Jesus knows what that feels like.
Feeling isolated and like nobody understands?
Yep, he's been there, too.
Maybe that's why the Scriptures say "Cast all your cares upon him for he cares about you." 1 Peter 5:7.
The New International Version uses the word "anxiety."
Sometimes I think we carry a load of anxiety like a big duffel bag jam-packed full of rocks - then we add stuff like resentment, weariness, regret ....
It's time to dump the load and run to the cross.
Run to the Savior who understands burdens, who can handle them and who cares for you.
