A Sweet Exchange

“Cast your burden on the Lord,
and He will sustain you;
He will never allow
the righteous to be shaken.”
Psalm 55:22 HCSB
 
Friend, cast your burden on the Lord,
Whatever it might be.
No matter whether big or small,
Just leave it at His feet –
 
Perhaps someone you dearly love
Who’s suffering day by day,
Some darkness you can’t seem to shake,
A child who’s lost their way,
 
A heart broken by deep betrayal…
Christ has been there, too.
He has the strength on which to lean;
His arms can carry you.
 
He says to cast it all on Him
Because He loves and cares.
He sees your heartache and your pain.
He hears your fervent prayers.
 
So go to Him today, my friend,
And lay that burden down.
Then He’ll replace it with His peace;
And there’s no sweeter sound.
 
 
“casting all your care on Him,
because He cares about you.”
1 Peter 5:7 HCSB
