Jesus ... our Burden-Bearer

Jesus … our Burden-Bearer

 “Are you tired? Worn out? Burned out on religion? Come to me. Get away with me and you’ll recover your life. I’ll show you how to take a real rest. Walk with me and work with me—watch how I do it. Learn the unforced rhythms of grace. I won’t lay anything heavy or ill-fitting on you. Keep company with me and you’ll learn to live freely and lightly.” ~ Matthew 11:28-30, MSG


Lord, Your love astounds me. How great is Your lovingkindness towards us! How great is Your faithfulness! Bless You, O Lord.

My heart drips with heaviness for my loved ones. The burdens are great. But then I remember Your lovingkindness and I remember how You sorrow over Your children too. You are not a god who is oblivious to our needs, our pain. You are a God who draws near to us in the difficult places like a magnet to steel.

You, Lord, are our Burden-Bearer.

Awaken our hearts to remember these things Lord.

Open our eyes to see.

I ask that You stir hope in those who are overwhelmed with sorrow and fear. Teach them as You are teaching me, to place their burdens at Your feet as an offering — a sacrifice well-pleasing to You. What a gift of trust we give You when we let go of those things that consume our thoughts and hearts.

Thank You for being our Burden-Bearer.

You are an awesome God — a good, good Father.
