Psalm 55:22 (ESV)
Cast your burden on the Lord,
and he will sustain you;
he will never permit
the righteous to be moved.

Sometimes you just get weary of life. It feels like your world is closing in on you, and there is no one to turn to. Everything is going wrong at the same time, and the places you used to find peace are full of turmoil. We all go through these trying times. It’s hard to admit that we are crumbling on the inside. Our pride forces us to smile through the hurt, the pain, the disappointment, and to pretend everything is okay.

When we are alone in the dark, the reality that we have failed overwhelms us. It is in these times of unrest that we must look to Jesus and unload our burdens on Him. We are imperfect people with a perfect Savior. He never told us to carry the weight of the world on our shoulders. YOU ARE NOT SUPERMAN/WOMAN! Get over yourself and run to Jesus. Deflate that puffed up chest, let those tears fall, and collapse in the arms of the Lord.

He will sustain you; He cares for you. You will get through the rough patches because He will carry you through. God will not forsake you in your weakness. It is in times of weakness that we can fully recognize His strength. It is in times of brokenness that we discover just how much God loves us.
1 Peter 5:6-7 (ESV)
Humble yourselves, therefore, under the mighty hand of God so that at the proper time he may exalt you, casting all your anxieties on him, because he cares for you.
