There are a lot of weight loss methods out there that claim to help you lose weight in one month, two weeks, etc. Most are bogus. However, there is one method to lose weight that takes very little time, and it actually works. Take your burdens, and your past mistakes, and lay them at the feet of Jesus. You’ll feel twenty pounds lighter.

Matthew 11:28 reads, “Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. Lay down your past mistakes and anything weighing heavy on your heart. God will take them and carry them for you. Imagine the weight lifted from your shoulders.

There is only one true way to do this weight loss method. You must not only lay your burdens at His feet but then you have to turn around and walk away. Prove to Him you trust that He’ll get rid of all that is weighing you down.

One of the biggest mistakes we make is to come back. We don’t want to let our problems or guilt go. We like to carry them like our own cross.

Other times we feel we have too many. In that case, lay one burden at the feet of Jesus today. Let him have just one, and you’ll still feel lighter.

I plan to let go of my past of not raising my oldest daughter in a church home. She went with her grandmother for years to a Baptist church, but I feel if I’d raised her in a church home, she’d have God in her life today. However, I will place that at Jesus’ feet. We can’t go back and change things. I can only pray that she returns to God.

What is it that is weighing you down and keeping you from being happy? Give it to Jesus now. Announce it here then let it go and never take it back up again.
