The Burden Taker

by Darla Noble

Why are you in despair, my soul? Why are you disturbed within me? Hope in God! For I shall still praise him for the saving help of his presence.

Psalm 42:5

Jesus is the burden-taker. He wants us to bring our troubled hearts and minds to Him to comfort, care for, and mend. If you don’t believe me, maybe the words of the following songs will be more convincing…

What a Friend We have in Jesus:
Have we trials and temptations?
Is there trouble anywhere?
Jesus knows our every secret;
Take it to the LORD in prayer.

If your body suffers pain and your health you can’t regain, and your soul is almost sinking in despair, Jesus knows the pain you feel. He can save and He can heal.

Take your burden to the Lord and leave it there.
Leave it there.
Leave it there.

Take your burden to the LORD and leave it there. If you trust and never doubt, He will surely bring you out. Take your burden to the LORD and leave it there.

Let Jesus take your burdens from you today and every day.

Pray: Jesus, take my burdens from me and fill me with the confidence and peace that comes from knowing they are being taken care of. In your name, I pray, amen.
