HE WANTS US TO TELL HIM
“Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls. For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.”
Matthew 11:28-30 KJV
A dear friend of mine that I have known for several years stopped calling me. I really missed her and so I called her but she never answered. She just let the voice mail take the message. I prayed and asked God what I should do because we are good friends. God laid it on my heart to call her again.
When I called her yesterday, she answered and I asked her what was wrong. She told me she has been going through a dark valley and she didn’t want to burden me with her problems. I told her real friends are there for each other in the bad times as well as in the good times and asked her to share with me.
I understand how my friend feels because I have felt the same way when I was going through dark valleys. Have you ever wanted to tell a friend you were hurting but didn’t want to burden your friend? There is good news. Jesus is the best Friend we will ever have and He wants us to tell Him.
Jesus is waiting with open arms for us to come to Him. He longs to comfort and encourage us. He will dry our tears with tender loving kisses. We have a loving, understanding and compassionate Saviour Who knows how it feels to be lonely and discouraged. Run into His arms and let Him comfort you.
Heavenly Father, thank You for loving us so much that You gave Jesus to die for our sins. Jesus, You are the best Friend we will ever have. I love You so much. In Jesus’ Name, I pray. Amen.
