When did this load become so heavy?
I’ve been picking up speed and gathering stones
Forgetting the place I can set them all down.
Ignoring the fact that I don’t walk alone.
Why do I try to solve all my problems?
I get lost in a world of my doubts and my fears
Forgetting Your plans are always for me
Ignoring the truth that you keep track of my tears.
If I walked alone I’d surely succumb
My hands would grow tired
My heart would go numb
But I know a place where I find my rest
There’s joy and peace in Your unequaled love.
When did my hope fail and desert me?
My throat has grown dry
I’m not quenching my thirst
Forgetting that rivers flow from my God
Ignoring His Kingdom must surely come first.

We can give Jesus our Burdens
“Are you weary, carrying a heavy burden? Come to me. I will refresh your life, for I am your oasis. Simply join your life with mine. Learn my ways and you’ll discover that I’m gentle, humble, easy to please. You will find refreshment and rest in me. For all that I require of you will be pleasant and easy to bear.”Matthew 11:28-30 (The Passion Translation)
He Is Merciful Towards Us
“You have taken account of my wanderings. Put my tears in Your bottle—are they not in Your book? Then my enemies will retreat on the day I cry for help. By this I will know that God is on my side.”Psalm 56:8-9 (Berean Study Bible)
Seek God’s Will First
“Seek first God’s kingdom and what God wants. Then all your other needs will be met as well.”Matthew 6:33 (New Century Version)
And Rise on Wings like Eagles (Risiliency)
“Why would you ever complain, O Jacob, or, whine, Israel, saying, “God has lost track of me. He doesn’t care what happens to me”? Don’t you know anything? Haven’t you been listening? God doesn’t come and go. God lasts. He’s Creator of all you can see or imagine. He doesn’t get tired out, doesn’t pause to catch His breath. And He knows everything, inside and out. He energizes those who get tired, gives fresh strength to dropouts. For even young people tire and drop out, young folk in their prime stumble and fall. But those who wait upon God get fresh strength. They spread their wings and soar like eagles, they run and don’t get tired, they walk and don’t lag behind.Isaiah 40:31 (The Message)
