Will You Surrender

“Come to Me, all who are weary and heavy-laden, and I will give you rest.” (Matthew 11:28; NASB)
Relax; you don’t have to have it all figured out. All you need to do is come to Him. If you’re thinking, I have nothing to give or nothing to offer Jesus right now, that’s exactly where He wants you. He just wants dependency; He just wants you. You don’t have to clean yourself up to come to Jesus. You come to Jesus, and He cleans you up.
I can’t imagine what you are going through right now — trials, suffering, heartache, pain. But I can tell you that whatever it is, it’s not too big for God. His grace can cover it, and your heart can be made new. In those times when I felt like I was drowning, I thought God was off in a distant land. Later I realized that’s when He is most near.
Will you surrender? I don’t know where you are or where you’re coming from, but I know Jesus has a better plan for your life than you do. He is a better king of your life than you are. No one has caused me more hurt, shame, guilt, and pain than me. He knows, and He rescues me. He can do the same for you.
Just come as you are. Are you tired? Worn out? “Come to Me, all who are weary and heavy laden, and I will give you rest.”
