You can have all of me

Lord,


You can have all of me.
My self-image,
my dreams,
my family,
my career,
my pain,
my fear,
my plans, 
my secret places.

I surrender.
All of it.
I give it to you.

It belongs to you, anyway,
because I belong to you.

I don't know why I keep pulling this all back on me.
It weighs me down,
clouds my thinking,
discourages and scares me.
I am weary from the burden of it.

You want to carry it for me.
You want to carry me.

So you can have me back again.
Again and again
and every time I forget and pull this all on myself.
Again and again.

I love you.
I trust you.

I need you.

Amen.

“Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy and my burden is light.”--Matthew 11:28-30
