Mouse Unrest, Resting in Jesus

Matthew 11:28-30
Come to me all you labor and heavy laden and I will give you rest.
Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart and you shall find rest to your souls
For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.

Last Tuesday I was thinking about this verse.  I was thinking about the rest God gives to us when we are weighed down with burdens.  Unknown to me I was carrying burdens but hadn't dealt with them.

I  had come up stairs for something and there was a cute mouse on my Kitchen counter .  The cut mouse idea wore off and  I  screamed and freaked out. I grabbed the cutting board and I whacked it several times. I dumped the mouse in my garden out front.  I was glad to get rid of the little rodent.  How dare this mouse inhabit my kitchen counter

I began to shake . I had just killed a mouse.  I called several people to tell them what I had done.

I started to cry.  The issues of missing my mom came up.  I wouldn't wish mom back. but I was missing mom.  Mom passed away 6 years ago in May.  I wanted to talk to mom and tell her all that I was doing and what was going on.   

I was also upset about the mouse and wondered if there might be a few otherones.  It turns out the neighbors had the family across the street from us.  I found it hard to sleep that night. 

After a few hours of not sleeping I said Jesus I give you my grief.  I will trust you to comfort me.  I will trust you.  You are here for me and I know you are trustworthy.   I started out saying I trust God because  Jesus has all authority.  I will trust God as Jesus is beautiful.  I will trust God as Jesus is my comfort.  I will trust God because Jesus is dependable.  
As I did this  I  sensed the presence of the Holy Spirit in my heart and I was able to relax and sleep.

I still am looking around corners for mice but haven't seen any and I hope not to.

By the way if any of you are wondering I threw out the cutting board.
We cleaned the kitchen counter. 

The next morning I had Maurice dispose of it and he couldn't find the mouse. I was hoping I wouldn't have to see the mouse again.  So I went out and yes the mouse was dead.

Margaret,
This devotion disturbed me :-)

I absolutely, positively, 100%, without a doubt HATE mice. Yes, we shouldn't dislike (hate) any of God's creatures, but this is one I just can't tolerate.

I've never been the girly-girl who screams at bug & worms, but when it comes to all mice (except Mickey) I'm on top of the table.

I commend you for having the cuts to hit it with your board.
Did I say I didn't like mice?
