Taking our burdens to the Lord

It is so easy sometimes to get discouraged and burdened down with the cares of this life. And all these things can so easily rob us of our peace. I woke up this morning with one of my favorite songs on my mind, What a Friend We Have in Jesus! What a blessing it is to be able to bring all of our cares and concerns to Him and to know that He hears our prayers and cares for us! I hope you will be as encouraged as I am by the words of this song and that you will remember to take everything to Him in prayer!

“What a friend we have in Jesus, All our sins and griefs to bear! What a privilege to carry Everything to God in prayer! Oh, what peace we often forfeit, Oh, what needless pain we bear, All because we do not carry Everything to God in prayer! Have we trials and temptations? Is there trouble anywhere? We should never be discouraged, Take it to the Lord in prayer!” (What a Friend We Have in Jesus by Joseph Scriven)
