My heart…

As I sat in church on Sunday, my heart was heavy with the thought of sins we are fighting, with battles we are losing, with sadness we are bearing.  

Yesterday as I was homeschooling–doing the very thing I am so blessed and privileged to do: spend time with my kids and help them learn important things–my heart was angry, impatient, easily frustrated.

This morning my heart is overwhelmed by the Christmas holiday quickly approaching.  With so many other responsibilities, how will I ever focus on what’s most important?

So many burdens we face as humans.  Sometimes the load is just unbearable.  Our eyes become fixed on the here-and-now.  

Jesus’ heart…

Rest in Him.

Love, Wendy
