Burdens Ease

From Matthew 10:38-39:  And whoever does not take up the cross and follow Me is not worthy of Me.  Those who find their life will lose it, and those who lose their life for My sake will find it.”

Life’s suffering

World calls out

Run from burdens

Filled with doubt

 

Wandering

Castaway now

Full of hate

Life’s heavy plow

 

Overwhelming

Darkness calls

Enemy waits

Man shall fall

 

Each of us

Jesus teaches

Cross to bear

Pain, it reaches

 

Taking up cross

Burdens ease

Embrace each one

Mercy sees

 

Follow Christ

Losing old ways

Find new life

Faith’s hope ablaze

From the words of American pastor and Christian author, Charles Swindoll:  “Each of us has some area of pain and suffering in life.  The world around us would have us run from that burden–to resent it, hate it.  Instead, we should embrace it.”
