Matthew 11:28

Matthew 11:28 (AMP)

Come to Me, all you who labor and are heavy-laden and overburdened, and I will cause you to rest. [I will ease and relieve and refresh your souls.]

This verse just works for me tonight!! Up until last night that described me quite well. All who labor...are heavy-laden...overburdened...cast down...down trodden...sad...joyless...tired...the list could just go on forever! Did you notice something I wrote though? Up until last night! What do you think that means? Maybe that last night I threw the towel in...gave up...told God I had had enough and I quit! I was there...really close to doing just that yesterday. But that's not what happened. Last night it all changed for good. There is a little something that I have always liked...But GOD!!! God showed up in my life last night and worked a miracle for me! He set me free from something that I have struggled with for quite sometime. God is a miracle working God. Always has been and always will be!

When you get to that situation in your life where you just don't think you can take things anymore...
When you get to that place in your life where you know that you just have to give it up and "let go"...
The day you finally realize that nothing is going to change until you "surrender all" to the Lord...
In yourself you believe that you have done everything you can to fix a situation in your life...
The situation that will not change unless GOD steps in...

Those times are what I refer to as "But GOD" moments! Moments when there is nothing left for you to do except cry out to GOD, and pray in JESUS Name, for Him to come and take control of whatever your problem is. Only then...when you surrender totally to HIM and tell HIM so...GOD in all HIS might and power comes in and takes care of things!

But GOD!!!

Hi Chelle - amen amen. I love the 'but God' moments. I think its when we finally surrender...to HIM... and then the breakthrough comes.
God bless

am so happy when I read your blog. Our God is merciful and knows perfectly what we feel. Your blog gives me courage. And yes, I know also these moments ...

Chelle, I have always loved those words - But God! Sometimes God needs to empty us of everything so we can see that He is all we need. When we feel hopeless, we find HOPE in Him. So beautiful and true. Thank you and many blessings!

This is good Chelle and what I have found out even with myself, I go to God and then find myself later being worried over it again and that is not how we are to be..what that verse means is to give it to Him and leave it there..sometime ago the Lord spoke to me and told me that every time I give something to Him and the moment I began to worry all over I snatch it right from His hands..that's why it takes time for my prayers to be answered because it's like I am playing tug a war with God...And He is so right we all do it so now I am not as bad as I use to be He's working it out in me..thanks again for sharing such a right time word
