I may have posted this song years ago, but I find myself needing to hear it. Almost 3 months ago, I gave birth to our fourth child, but only the second to make it to life on earth. Since then, and quite frankly well before then, I’ve been struggling to find time to spend with the Lord. I’m ashamed to admit it, but the One I needed and still need most was pushed to the side. There is nothing like a new life and adjusting to a new member of the family to remind me of how much I need Him. My cup has been less than empty for quite some time – more like dry as a bone.

This evening I was reading the Magnificat and was reminded that I have only because God gives. Everything in  my life is a testament to God’s grace and mercy. I have been ushered in to His table as one who belongs, when in fact I shouldn’t belong, but God in His infinite love and mercy seats me as though I do because I have been covered by the blood of His Son. In the moments where my identity has faded and seems to no longer exist I love that He reminds me my identity and significance is in Him. When I feel lost and alone, He tells me that I am neither. Not only does God always know exactly where I am, but He is always right beside me and at times carrying me through. This is one of those times. I’m grateful because I’m weary. My strength is gone and my will to move forward is barely there – it is now more than ever that He carries me. I’m grateful.

Matthew 11:28

“Come to me, all who are weary and heavy-laden, and I will give you rest.”
