The Bearer of Burdens

Praise to the Lord,

our God who saves.

Who bears our burdens,

all of our days.

He is sovereign,

over the earth.

His love, mighty,

before our birth.

He is our shield,

protective One.

Lighter of dark;

Fueler of sun.

No harm may come,

to guarded soul;

the eternal –

forever whole.

Though illness comes,

and bodies break;

future secured,

in heaven’s wake.

(Responding to Psalm 68:19-20)

Dear Heavenly Father, thank You that You lovingly and willingly bear our burdens so that we don’t have to.  Thank You that You save us from sin, self, and all that seeks to destroy us.  Thank You that You are far greater than anything that would try to come against us.  Forgive us for our fears and doubts, and help us to completely depend on You.  Thank You that You are a shield about us.  Teach us to walk confidently in the covering and light of Your love, so that we too, may love others as You love us.  May many come to know You by our love.  Amen.
