~I must tell Jesus!

I must tell Jesus all of my trials; 
I can not bear these burdens alone;
In my distress He kindly will help me; 
He ever loves and cares for His own!
I must tell Jesus! I must tell Jesus!
I cannot bear my burdens alone;
I must tell Jesus! I must tell Jesus!
Jesus can help me, Jesus alone!

I was humming this song today and it got me on this train of thought: When you have a problem or a dilemma, who do you go to, to talk it through?
For me it's normally my dad. I feel safe in sharing my heart with him because he wants what's best for me and trys to do what he can to solve my problem or question, or at least point me in the right direction! 
 And that is the kind of relationship we need to have with God too. Intimate, trusting, and...bold?! Ok that last one might not sound quite right, but what I mean is, God wants us to trust Him so completely that we come running to Him all the time. Yes we have to be reverent and respectful, but He is our heavenly Father and He loves it when you come willingly to spend time with Him or to just pour your heart out to Him.
 Sometimes (more often than it should) when I'm feeling burdened by something, I feel like I need to get it out. So...I go find someone who will listen to me. Don't get me wrong, there's nothing wrong with talking things over, but could there be a reason why I'm feeling like this? Maybe because I'm thinking about it from my perspective and not from God's. Maybe God allowed me to have these feelings so that I would see that I need to trust Him more. I want to goa little further than that. I believe God wants every area in our lives, every problem, every discouragement, to show us our weakness and then for us to turn to His strength and power. 
 I've heard Sarah Mally talk a bit about springboards and so I wanted to challenge ya'll to do that, except in a little different way than she did. This week whenever you start feeling  down or discouraged, stop right there, and use those feelings to remind you that God is there for you all the time. Tell Him what you are dealing with and don't walk away from Him until He gives you a peace about it. 

We serve an all powerful God! He has conquered! He is victorious! He wants you to be too! And you can. By getting to know Him and through obeying His commands.  


  1. I love that song! Keep trusting Him! :)

    1. Yes, I really like it too! And I sure will try!
