Be silent before the Sovereign Lord (Zephaniah 1:7; NIV).

Be still before the Lord and wait patiently for him (Psalm 37:7).

Then Jesus said, “Come to me, all of you who are weary and carry heavy burdens, and I will give you rest” (Matthew 11:28; NLT).

Give your burdens to the LORD, and he will take care of you (Psalm 55:22; NLT).

Then, calling the crowd to join his disciples, he said, “If any of you wants to be my follower, you must turn from your selfish ways, take up your cross, and follow me” (Mark 8:34; NLT).

Here I am,
On my journey
Through life.

Please help me
To rest a while
In silence,
Putting down my burdens,
And sharing them with you.

Then, help me
To take up my cross again,
And follow your Son
As best I can,
Through life.

In his dear name,
