HE BEARS OUR BURDENS
“Casting all your care upon him; for he careth for you.”
1 Peter 5:7 KJV
Charles Austin Miles wrote the hymn “All Alone”. I’m so glad these words are true. “When I have burdens to bear which no one can share, I take them to Jesus, the Man of Calvary; When I have crosses to bear, my Savior is there, And always takes the heavy end, and gives the light to me.”
Our loving Saviour is faithful to bear our burdens when we feel like we can’t take another step or give another smile. Have you ever told someone about a burden you were carrying and thought the person didn’t understand? Not only does Jesus understand what we are going through, He really cares. It breaks His heart when we are sad.
We need to share our burdens with Jesus. Pastor Charles Price Jones wrote the hymn “Come unto Me”. “Hear the blessèd Savior calling the oppressed, “O ye heavy laden, come to Me and rest. Come, no longer tarry, I your load will bear, Bring Me every burden, bring Me every care.”
