Lay it all down.

There is rest for you at the cross.

You never carry your burdens alone. Christ had already carried them on the cross! He knows how heavy they are and He cares. He wants you to lay them all down today. You are not meant to carry them in your strength but to lay them all down at the cross. The cross is not a place that we come to when we accept Jesus as our Savior but a place we need to come to daily to find refreshment and peace for our souls. No matter the struggle or the sin you’re carrying, lay it down. Christ gently and lovingly invites you to come to Him so He can give you rest. He will enable you with the strength you need to go on. Let Him place the right kind of burden on your shoulders!

Come to me, all who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you, and learn from me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light. Matthew 11:28-30 (ESV)
