When Christ Bid Us, “Come …”


"Then Jesus said, “Come to me, all of you are are weary and carry heavy burdens, and I will give you rest.” Matthew 11:28

I’m here, Lord.

I’m tired, scared, hurting - pretty much a wreck - but I’m here.

I can manage through most days pretty well.  

Once in a while there is a good one.

But there are days, like today, when I have no clue what to do.

Days when I feel broken beyond healing.

I’m not sure I’ve ever been this weary.  This worn down by the continual stream of complications that never seems to end.

I’m just tired.

I guess that verse is for me today, isn’t it, Lord?

You always seem to know what verse I will be needing, and you plant it in my path.

I am so grateful.

You know that I am so incredibly tired of it all, weary and feel burdened beyond what I feel I can carry.

You knew that would happen.

You knew I’d be feeling this way.  Today.  When you allowed me to find the words I need so desperately.

And here You are, before me, with arms wide open, beckoning me to come to You. To give it all to You.  To lay it down at the foot of the cross.

Lord, I don’t know what else to do but come to You.

All I can do is quietly whisper,

“I’m here.”
