The things that burden us

Jesus said '‘Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest.  Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls.  For my yoke is easy and my burden is light.’ (Matthew 11:28-30)

Sometimes the things that weigh me down
Are difficult to release.
Life’s demands and struggles,
And the expectations that others place upon me,
Will not simply disappear.

Help me to hear your promise
Is not to always take them away
But sometimes to walk with me - sharing their load

What's on your plate? - loaves and fish

What's on your plate? - the things we long for

What's on your plate? - introduction
