Is there anything more precious than having a sweet baby lean against you? And if you get the blessing of rocking them to sleep, you know when they’ve drifted off because they become as limp as a forgotten houseplant and they lean all their weight on you.
Recently I’ve heard several people use the term, “Lean in” when referring to trusting in the Lord during a hard time.
I love that!
It conjures up in my mind the picture of that little baby leaning in so hard that they rest completely on the one holding them. Isn’t that exactly what we need to do with our dear Savior?
I don’t know what burden you’re carrying today, but can I encourage you to lean in with all your heart, your emotion, your baggage, and burdens? Lean in until you feel your weight being transferred to Him. Allow the Lord to carry you and your struggles today, and then enjoy the rest that will follow!
Trust in the Lord with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding.
In all thy ways acknowledge him (lean on Him), and he shall direct thy paths.
