Live With Great Joy 2: Cast Burdens

I easily complain, criticize, and worry just like my mother. Yet it is difficult to live happily with such a character. Then what should I do?
Jesus said, “Come to me all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest.”–Matthew 11: 28.

I imagine a big garbage bin and toss all crap, which bug me, one after another and give it to Jesus. Yet some are so huge that it takes a long time to toss, or some pile up right away even after I toss them.

“Jesus, I am so sorry, but I am so fed up! ”
” I hate this and that…”
“I am so worried that it’s excruciating!”, etc.

I talk to Jesus honestly, because He can see through my real thoughts and feeling even if I want to hide them, and ask Him to wash away all my dark spots replacing them with His peace, patience, and kindness so I can get closer to Him.

Life is so tough that I can’t carry all the burdens by myself: No way I can solve all the problems and make my life “happy” by myself.

I need Jesus, who tells me to leave my burdens, lifts me up as I trip over, or rescues me if I fall into a bottomless dark hole. Then it becomes possible to live with great joy regardless of the circumstances.
