Where to Add Negatives?
In my time of reading and prayer this morning, I debated whether to list the things that are overwhelming me. I know I should add the positives in prayer – count the gifts. But should I grumble? I actually wondered this for a split second. Then the truth came like fresh rain.
There is one great forum for the counting of negatives:
This is where we find rest.
Cast your burden upon the Lord and He will sustain you;
He will never allow the righteous to be shaken. – Psalm 55:22
Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy and my burden is light.” – Matthew 11:29-30
Truly my soul finds rest in God; my salvation comes from him. – Psalm 62:1
It’s the elemental things that I forget so easily!
Grumbling to myself only reinforces the weight.
Laying it before him lightens my load.
I had much rest in this today. I pray you do too!
