6-10-15 Cast Your Burden

burden

Cast thy burden upon the LORD, and he shall sustain thee:

he shall never suffer the righteous to be moved.

Psalm 55:22 KJV

~~~~~~~~~~~

Whatever you may have belongs to God,

And moreso if you gave your life to Christ,

Yet here you sit, this body roughly shod,

Bombarded by temptation’s daily tryst.

So cast your burden now unto the Lord.

Don’t let this moment pass with one concern.

He died on your behalf, His blood was poured,

So live with love for Him and all in turn.

Now, Jesus won’t endure your fall from grace,

He promised He would keep you safe from harm.

Let go of all the burdens you embrace

And fall into the Savior’s loving arms.

Release unto the Lord your laded pain;

He’ll lift you up, and you He shall sustain.

9-26-14 Them Who Are Called

troubles

When you obey the Will of God with love

Allowing Christ to live inside of you,

When you submit your life to God above

All things will work together good and true.

This doesn’t mean your wool will turn to silk

Or opposition tucks its tail and runs;

You will have sickness, still of mortal ilk,

Sometimes you’ll find your trials have just begun.

No matter what befalls your troubled life,

God’s spinning all your problems into gold.

He knows the purpose of your pain and strife;

He’s forming you into a sacred mould.

Your suffering is truly not in vain:

Just take the hand of Christ; He will sustain.

And we know that all things work together

for good to them that love God,

to them who are the called according to his purpose.

Romans 8:28 KJV
