Your Joys and Sorrows, Your Wants and Fears

Bring them all to Jesus.

Isaiah 51:11  "So the ransomed of the Lord shall return, and come to Zion with singing.  With everlasting joy on their heads.  They shall obtain joy and gladness;  Sorrow and sighing shall flee away."

Commentary  "Keep your wants, your joys, your sorrows, your cares and your fears before God.  You cannot burden Him.  His heart of love is touched by our sorrows and even by our utterance of them. Nothing is too great for Him to bear, for He holds up worlds, He rules over all the affairs of the universe.  Nothing that in any way concerns our peace is too small for Him to notice."

Proverbs 16:20  "...whoso trusteth in the Lord, happy is he."  Trusting in Him is the true secret to happiness and overcoming sorrows, cares and fears.  It is what has brought me this far.  Grandma Joan
