Soul is drawn to Heaven

Am I not a man who’s soul is drawn to Heaven like water from a dark well of Africa by Olaudah Equiano

Each one of us has that emptiness that only God can fill.  I knew that at the age of 8 or 9 years old and accepted Jesus as my Savior.  Yet even at my age of 63 1/2 I still have a hard time trusting God in all things.  It’s a heavy burden to try and carry the weight of the world on your shoulders.  You love so many and you hurt when they hurt.  But I have realized (from a dear friend) I”m not the Savior of this world he is.  God loves my family and all those I love here in Kampala that I consider family as much and even more than I do. He sees the pain, hurting, and poverty too.  So I am learning to not only let go of my past things that have weighed very heavy on my heart, but to let God take this weight because he knows what is best for all those I love and he will take care of them better then I ever could.

So I must cling to Matthew 11:28-30

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 of heart, and you will find rest.  For my yoke is easy and my burden is light.

Thanks everyone for all the prayers and support through this time as I learn to let go and look inside myself as well.
