Cast thy burden upon the LORD, and he shall sustain thee: 
he shall never suffer the righteous to be moved. 
Psalm 55:22


My life has taken many falls and tumbles ‘long the way.
The many trials have left me in a sure state of dismay,
For with each trial, I tried alone to tend, and soothe, and mend,
Instead of giving them to God – and on Him just depend…
But, I am learning, Lord.

It seems that I was determined to carry all the load;
I longed for smoother pathways, yet I walked a rocky road.
Little did I understand – God waited patiently
To pave a new beginning with a better life for me…
But, I am learning, Lord.

It took a real disaster to bring me to my knees;
To finally call upon the Lord and say, “God help me, please.”
He came, with no delaying, with strong arms that could hold
The weight of all my burdens and He gladly took the load.
And I am learning, Lord.

What a needless cross I carried, all because I could not see –
What a friend I have in Jesus, and the love He has for me.
Peace I find when troubles hover, though the outcome is unknown,
For if yet the road is rocky, I won’t walk it all alone…

For I am learning, Lord.

Jesus has promised to carry our burdens, 
but so often we try to carry them ourselves 
or help him out.  
He tells us to cast them all on Him, 
because He cares!

Casting all your care upon him; for he careth for you. 
1 Peter 5:7

I would love for you to leave me a comment.

  2. My sweet friend, what a precious, precious post and such perfectly timed words to be read this morning. You are right, so often we try to carry our own burdens, but we have a loving Heavenly Father who is there wanting to carry the burdens for us. Oh, if we would just rest in Him at all times.... Thank you for sharing, dear one, and know that you are in my thoughts and prayers.

    Hugs to you!
