Burdens

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

Jesus said, “Come to me all of you who are weary and carry heavy burdens, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you. Let me teach you, because I am humble and gentle at heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy to bear, and the burden I give you is light” (Matthew 11:28-30; NLT).

Father,
I give you all my
Heavy burdens,
Gladly accepting
Your lighter ones
Instead.
