Take all to Jesus!
(Octavius Winslow, “Go to Jesus”)
Then Jesus said, “Come to Me, all of you
who are weary and carry heavy burdens,
and I will give you rest.” Matthew 11:28
The life of faith is a constant coming to
Jesus for daily, hourly, and fresh supplies.
Let every circumstance and event, every
trial, sorrow, and need, be an echo of the
gracious life inspiring words: “Go to Jesus!”
Go to Jesus, confessing sin.
Go to Jesus, unveiling grief.
Go to Jesus, telling need.
Go to Jesus, breathing love, desire, and hope.
You are still in the land of famine and of need.
But your heavenly Father would remind you
that He has anticipated and provided . . .
for all your requirements,
for all your history,
for your daily demands,
in Him whom whose fullness fills all in all.
Take the broken heart;
take the cold heart, or the glowing heart;
take your barrenness, or your fruitfulness;
take the sunbeam of prosperity, or the cloud of adversity;
take the joy, take the sorrow;
take all to Jesus!
Let Him participate in all, keep you in all,
sympathize with all; for Jesus is your Brother,
raised up to befriend, relieve, and preserve
you in your time of need.
