Releasing that Bunched Up Mind

As time continues its race dragging us into our future, I want to put my heels down and say “WAIT! I want to rest." I want to have Jesus’ rest where I just know His truth and walk thru my days; because sometimes I get too bunched up~ so many things seem to be pushing from behind calling for me to settle them. Then my mind wonders ahead and all the requirements are yelling at my mind ”Do me! I need to be done!” “I’m coming due!” Thus behind and ahead my mind feels beset by obligations.

It’s time to take a deep breath and spend dedicated time with my Lord. When I spend time with Him, my life quiets and stays balanced. So this morning I’ll focus on Him and rest on Him. He brings me a reminder from earlier this year~

“I will never, ever leave you. I will never, ever let you go. Where you go, I go. Where you put your feet, I am right there with you. Even the decisions that you might make that maybe could take you this way or take you that way, I am still with you. I have anointed you. I have equipped you to do My plan, My purpose through you. So don’t quit or give up or give in or lay it down but lift it up and bring it to Me and I will make ... I said I would not leave you. I said I would not leave you. I am with you today, tomorrow, for the rest of your life on this earth I am with you.

My grace is sufficient.My anointing is in you and My anointing breaks every yoke that tries to come against you. So when you worship, lift your heart when you lift worship unto Me. And that worship brings almost a scent, a smell...  the only way I can say it, concerning what I called you to do. I have called you. I have anointed you. I have equipped you. I am with you and My presence will continually stay with you.


It takes me back to the basics. When I come to my Lord He “sits right down with me” and leads me into what He wants me to know and to focus on. He is always with me, and I can leave things in His hands and he will lead me with wisdom and energy. Sometimes I just leave things in His hands and it’s like He says, “I got this one.”

My favorite Scripture says,
 Psalm 138:8 (AMPC) The Lord will perfect that which concerns me

Then I also reflect on Matthew:
Matthew 6:28-30 28
Come to Me, all you who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.
29 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.
30 For My yoke is easy and My burden is light.”



Take these two Scriptures together and for me they create a place of rest, of freedom from pressure. Simply rely on our Lord’s  ability… that’s it. Just learning how to get out of the way~  that’s really what grace is all about… how to get out of the way! Let God do His job.

Letting go and getting out of the way allowing Him to do His job coupled with believing His Word is what brings relief.






So if you’ve had a rough passage like my recent experience, Seek the Lord and pray out His Scripture promises. I am now feeling free and happy! No more bunched up mind; no more burdens; They are no longer mine. You see I traded them with Jesus. He has my burdens and I trust in Him and His Word, so no burdens are left. Trust Him, my friends, and you too can find His rest.
