It's heavy, Are y'all feeling it?

Pandemic, race relations, lockdowns, political unrest.

It's heavy, Are y'all feeling it?

I don’t know why, but this week I’ve really noticed the mental and emotional fatigue.⠀

And I’ve asked God why. Why does it need to be so heavy.⠀

Have you noticed that too?  The heaviness?  The crushing weight of all that's going on in the world - and maybe in your own life right now.

He beautifully reminded me that I the things I’m carrying aren’t mine to hold. ⠀

That rest and restoration can be found in him.⠀

You see, trials will come. But the one who sits on the throne has already overcome them all.⠀

Sounds easier said then done. To release the heaviness of what’s going on in the world. I know.⠀

One of the things I know I need to do a better job of is guarding my mind. No, that doesn’t mean being ignorant to life’s events.⠀

But it does mean limiting and curating my exposure.⠀

Like not checking all the news outlets multiple times a day.⠀

Or muting accounts that are polarizing, divisive and lacking in love and grace.⠀

It means starting my mornings with Jesus, focused on who he is and what he’s promised me.⠀

It means getting on my knees and surrendering the heaviness over to him ⠀

It’s hard to see a light at the end of this tunnel.⠀

But I’m not putting my trust in my sight. No, I’m gonna put it in Jesus.

Won't you join me?
