COME TO ME WITH THE DIFFICULTIES THAT ARE WEIGHING YOU DOWN.
Even though there is no relief in sight, your troubles are actually light and momentary—from an eternal perspective.
Your problems feel so heavy because you have given them too much power.
Each time you focus on them and forget about Me, you empower them a bit more.
Even small objects placed very close to your eyes can obscure most of the vista before you.
I want you to put your troubles down long enough to view the vast expanse of Life that is spread out before you—all the way into eternity!
The best way to lay your problems down is:
Bring them to Me.
Unburden yourself by pouring out your heart to Me, for I am your Refuge.
As you release your woes to Me (even temporarily), your vision improves and you can see Me more clearly.
Linger with Me while My Light shines powerfully into your heart.
This Light illuminates the knowledge of the Majesty and Glory revealed in My Face.
This is the eternal Glory that outweighs all your troubles.
- from " Jesus Lives" by Sarah Young
"Our light and momentary troubles are achieving for us an eternal glory that far outweighs them all."
- 2 CORINTHIANS 4:17
"Trust in him at all times, O people; pour out your hearts to him, for God is our refuge. Selah."
- PSALM 62:8
"For God Who said, Let light shine out of darkness, has shone in our hearts so as [to beam forth] the Light for the illumination of the knowledge of the majesty and glory of God [as it is manifest in the Person and is revealed] in the face of Jesus Christ (the Messiah)."
- 2 CORINTHIANS 4:6 AMP
