The Burden

The burden that I carry is so heavy on my back,

I am stumbling as I try to move forward, it is strength I lack.

Down again I fall as these trials get me down,

If only someone would help me get my life turned around.

 

I cry to the Lord, please help me, but He seems nowhere in sight.

My path is oh so dark, like the blackness of the night.

I cry again for hope, a faint cry that seems so weak.

The lying voice inside my head’s so loud I can’t hear You speak.

 

You say, “be still” and come to Me and lay it at Your feet,

I cannot seem to let it go, I’m afraid my expectations You won’t meet.

Oh how I wish to raise my head and say I will obey

But fear has got me in its’ grip, and on the ground I lay.

 

Get up my child, you gently say.  Get up and take my hand

I will work out all your trials, just not the way you planned.

I wove it all together before you were in the womb.

I paved the way so you’d be free, I even cleared the tomb.

 

So trust my child, I Am The Way.  I will not let you down.

I Am The Truth , it is not a lie,  I can turn your life around.

I Am The Life you seek to know, the path that sets you free,

I want so much to hold you close, if you’d just trust in Me.

Be Still

Life is so busy. We live in a day and age where we are over stimulated. We are so used to all the noise and rushing around that it seems unnatural and almost uncomfortable to be silent… we rarely sit still long enough for anything…especially to listen to GOD’s voice.

Yet He tells us in Psalm 46:10a “Be still, and know that I am God”

I think that if we slow down and come before GOD, He will renew us.  He will show us the plan He has for our lives.  It is SAFE with Him.

Forget the hustle and bustle and PAUSE for a bit…and simply spend time with your Dad. Start with just 5 minutes and see how valuable this is to your day and your life!  I encourage you to try it!
