Heavy Burdens




Heavy Burdens
© 2014 Tom D Blakely

Jesus teaches us
We are not alone
When things get too much
To share all with Him.
Sometimes our burden’s heavy
And it seems too much to bear
We may even doubt the word of God
Or believe He doesn’t care…
If that’s where we are
Weak and in despair
Take God at His word
Come to Him in prayer.

Jesus brings relief
In the storms of life
Turns our pain and grief
Into stronger faith.
We should praise God in trial
Taking all to Him in prayer
When we share our burden with the Lord
He will make it light to bear…
God’s word is the truth
All works for our best
We must learn from Christ
How to pass each test.


‘Come to Me, all you who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.
Take My yoke upon you and learn from Me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart,
and you will find rest for your souls. For My yoke is easy and My burden is light.’
[Matthew 11:28-30]
