This Weeks Message- (scripture taken from King James Version)
"GIVING IT ALL TO HIM"
Beloved brothers and sisters in the Lord. The following message was originally sent out on
At that time Jesus answered and said, I thank thee, O Father, Lord of heaven and earth, because thou hast hid
these things from the wise and prudent, and hast revealed them unto babes. Even so, Father: for so it seemed good in thy
sight. All things are delivered unto me of my
Father: and no man knoweth the Son, but the Father; neither knoweth any man the Father,
save the Son, and he to whomsoever the Son will reveal him.
COME UNTO ME, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you
rest. TAKE MY YOKE upon you, and LEARN
OF ME; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls. For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light (Matt -30)
Cast thy burden upon the Lord, and he shall
sustain thee: He shall never suffer the righteous to be moved (Ps 55:22)
A while back, I had a
dream. In this dream it appeared I was in the midst of nowhere. I looked around trying to soak in all my
surroundings, searching for which direction to go, but not being able to discern which way
was north, south, east or west. I knew that I
was traveling somewhere, that there was indeed a destination; however I had no idea where
I was headed. I remember that I was on a road;
however there was nothing on either side except desert land.
Upon my back, piled very high, were crates of various sizes that appeared to be
bound together by massive chains. I walked
bent forward, collapsing periodically under the weight of it all. Upon each crate was a label indicating its
contents, I suppose. One had the label Health written upon it, another said
Family, still another read
Finances, while another read Prayers. There were so many, and ALL were labeled. The Load was nearly unbearable. There were two of almost equal size that was the
heaviest among them all. They were placed on
the very top, one beside the other, and their labels read: Loneliness, and
The Church. I didnt
understand why these were the heaviest, but the weight of them pressed down on the other
crates and inevitably upon me. I couldnt
remember how the crates got there, or who had placed the labels on them. Perhaps it was I, but I couldnt remember. I only knew that I was so desirous to get rid of
the weight, but because I could not locate the key, I was unable to unlock the chains. Thus, I fell on my face in total despair and agony.
From a short distance I
could barely make out the figure of a man. The
light which surrounded him was nearly blinding, yet I lifted my face from the dust,
straining in an attempt to get a more clear view. From
the presence of the light I saw his arms outstretched.
Suddenly, hope was revived in me! It
is the Lord, I said to myself. Surely He
has come to remove all this heavy weight from me. I
laid there for a moment breathing a sigh of relief as I expected at any moment He would
walk over and remove the heavy load from my back, but he didnt come. He simply stood there with his arms outstretched. And then, I heard his voice coming from within the
light saying: COME UNTO ME. What? I said confused, Come? Lord I cannot take another step. Please, TAKE
these things from me that I may be able to stand upright again and walk freely! But, He answered only by saying again: COME UNTO ME! In obedience, I mustered up what strength was left
in me and stood up to proceed towards him. I
felt a little saddened that he did not simply lift me up, seeing my struggle to stand but
I was determine to heed to his command so I stood as best I could. Bent forward because of the heaviness of the weight
upon my shoulders and back, I began with one small step at a time. I kept my eyes downward
so as not to lose my footing, yet every now and again I would look up to see how close I
was to him. As I drew closer I could see his
eyes. They were filled with so much love,
warmth and compassion. My sadness left me for
a moment as I could see that He was indeed sensitive to my situation, and for a moment I
thought he was going to race over to me and literally rip each crate from my back, but
still He did not.
What seemed like an
endless walk into the light, into his presence, I finally did reach Him. I fell at his feet weeping and sobbing in complete
exhaustion. Lord, I said, I made it my
friend; now PLEASE TAKE these things from me,
this load are far too heavy for me to carry! My
daughter, he said, I cannot take them from you! For a moment I was completely taken back by his
words, I was stunned, nearly heartbroken at what he said.
I began to sob even more. I
looked up at Him and noticed the tears forming in his own eyes. Through the sobs I said, Lord, beloved
Savior, YOU promised me in YOUR word that you would never give me more than I could bear! Now, precious Lord, I can no longer bare the weight
of this. PLEASE, I cried, HELP ME! He looked down on me with such love and spoke so
very gently: My daughter, MY WORD NEVER RETURNS TO ME VOID, but you dont
understand. I can take NOTHING from NO ONE.
Therefore, I cannot TAKE those things from you; YOU
must GIVE THEM TO ME! When you give them to me, I will then receive them
and they will no longer be yours, but mine. But
my Lord, I said, How can I give these things to you.
Im barely able to stand let alone lift these things from me and hand
them over to you. Besides, my Lord they are
bound to me by heavy chains and Im unable to locate the key to open its locks. PLEASE
HELP ME! He smiled at me softly and said, But YOU have the key, youve been
carrying it with you all this time. I
began to go over in my mind just where the key might be.
I had no pockets in the clothing I was wearing so it could not be there. Where could it be?
Finally, out of frustration because I still could not find it I said:
Lord, where is the key? Where my Lord? I
cannot find it and Im exhausted! He
looked at me for a moment and then replied, Daughter, the key is in YOUR HAND, you are holding it! Now, I was really confused. What? I said. Lord
I dont understand. There is nothing in
my hand except these heavy chains which Ive been clutching for the longest
time. He then said: Daughter, the
..LET GO!!! There are no locks upon those chains. What have kept them secure upon your back is YOU!! You are holding on to them and not that they have
been bound to you!
For the first time I
took a look at my hands and noticed that I was indeed clutching tightly to the chains. I said to the Lord, Jesus, you mean all
thats been standing in the way of complete freedom from these chains was a simple
act of letting go! That is right
my daughter, he said. Now you understand
clearly! Instantly, upon hearing
this, I let go of the chains and every crate went tumbling to the ground. I stood upright, feeling stronger than Id
ever felt before. The Lord then bent over and
began lifting each crate but as he touched them, they all disappeared one by one, right
before my eyes. Where did they go my
Lord? I asked Him. He placed his arm
around me and looking me in the eye said: Ive already carried these for you.
Theres no need to carry them again. For Surely Ive BORNE YOUR GRIEFS and have CARRIED
YOUR SORROW in my own Body, ONCE AND FOR ALL!
I embraced him and began to sob again, only this time they were tears of
joy. I thanked him for teaching me this most
valuable lesson of LETTING GO, and GIVING IT
ALL TO HIM.
THANK YOU JESUS, MY BELOVED LORD AND SAVIOR!!
Humble yourselves therefore under the mighty hand of God, that he may exalt you in due time: CASTING ALL YOUR CARE UPON HIM; FOR HE CARETH FOR YOU (1ST Pet 5:6-7)
I love you all so very much. Have a blessed week in the Lord and remember: Whatever we do, do ALL for the GLORY of GOD, who ALONE is worthy of the GLORY and the PRAISE!
The Lord be with you this day and always! Shalom Uvracha (Peace and Blessings) ..
Kadosh, Kadosh, Kadosh,

May the peace of the Lord be with you today and alwaysKhandielese
