So what can we worn out nurturers do (besides scream and cry and throw things)? I have only one answer. Here it is:
"Come to Me, all who are weary and heavy-laden, 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 SHALL FIND REST FOR YOUR SOULS. For My yoke is easy, and My load is light."
How does that help? Use it as a prayer like this:
Jesus, I am coming to you right now. I am weary and heavy-laden. Please give me rest. Help me take your yoke. Lift this load. Exchange it for your light load. Help me Lord. Thank you.
Then just wait. He will answer and bring about rest for you.
That's what I'm going to do today.
