Merriam-Webster defines release as:
1. To set free from restraint, confinement or servitude
2. to relieve from something that confines, burdens or oppresses
Synonyms: loosen, unleash, unlock
Have you ever felt heavily burdened and craved relief? Have you desired release from the controlling parts of your life? Does the weight of life bear down and overwhelm? God promises relief from your burdens and all you need do is release them into His care. His Word reassures again and again that He will care for us and carry our burdens. Cry out – spill your heart – lay it before God and believe that He will provide!
So today and everyday that life’s burdens need to be released – Come to Jesus – He will give you rest!
Blessings for a beautiful week!

Great post Mary! I constantly need reminders that I need to stop trying so hard to answer my own prayers. That is God’s place to do this, and he has the best for me always. It is difficult because I am only a human and unable accept this sometimes. 🙂
Our humanness tends to cause us to make many decisions that are not Godly or grace-filled. Inspite of all our mistakes, God blesses us with forgiveness and His mercy everyday. So blessed when you stop by, Verona!
And only He can give the rest our souls long for. Thank you for this beautiful message this morning, Mary. You bless. xoxo
Thanks Beth! I love following your new normal series on FB. The joy that radiates through your words can be felt right through my computer screen! 🙂 Have a blessed week!
Thank you! I’ve read so many posts just this morning that talk about surrender, rest, release. I know God is speaking. Have a beautiful Sunday!
I love the way God shows up in all things when you need Him the most. I also read other posts in your link up with the same theme. God is working on all of us isn’t he??? Prayers and hugs!
I love this! “Release” was my OneWord a few years back (before I even knew that was a thing!) Stopping by from Barbie’s Weekend Brew! So glad we are neighbors!
I have been reading Lysa TerKeurst’s book The Best Yes and she uses this word a lot in the book. I also just felt very burdened by some things this past week and knew that God wanted me to release them to Him and then share with others. Have a blessed week!
AMEN! Sometimes I need a lot of help to give it to Him. Today – purposing to do just that in many ways. Blessings friend!
I am not good at letting go because of course you know we all are perfect at taking care of things ourselves-or so we think!! The word release is so powerful if we let it work the way it is supposed to and when we give it all to God. Blessed you stopped by! Have a beautiful week!
Peace comes with relief from Him.
Amen! Sunday blessings my friend!
