Philippians 4:6
"Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus."

I was reading my devotion this morning and thinking about how powerfully it fit me. It was about coming to Jesus no matter what our situation or feelings might be. Have you ever felt like you were just a burden to the Lord? Maybe you have felt as if he had grown tired of you coming to him over and over in your moments of depression and anxiety? Well, God doesn't care if you come to him all down and discouraged, he is just thankful you come. He wants all of your cares, all or your hurts, depressed heart and all. He never tires of you running into his embrace, he loves every single moment you need him.
The devil would love nothing more than to convince you otherwise. He will discourage you, but I am here to encourage you. Your Heavenly Father loves you and no matter what you are going through, or how many times you go through it, run to him. He is waiting with a love that soothes all pain, and he is just waiting to heal your aching heart in his embrace.

Prayer:
Heavenly Father,
How often the devil tries to tell us that we are a burden to you. How he makes us feel like a failure if we suffer from depression and anxiety. He wants to keep us away from your healing embrace, but today we run to you. We run into your embrace where we will find all that we have need of. We will run into your embrace where it is only there that we will find healing for your aching hearts. You are waiting, so today Father we run to you just was we are.
In Jesus Name,
Amen
