I know your burden

(from Winslow’s, “The Burden Cast upon God”) 
“Cast your burden upon the Lord, and
He shall sustain you.” Psalm 55:22.

It is by an act of simple, prayerful faith we
transfer our cares and anxieties, our sorrows
and needs, to the Lord.

Jesus invites you to come and lean upon
Him, and to lean with all your might upon
that arm that balances the universe, and
upon that bosom that bled for you upon
the soldier’s spear!

But you doubtingly ask, “Is the Lord able to do this
thing for me?”

And thus, while you are debating a
matter about which there is not the shadow of a
shade of doubt, the burden is crushing your gentle
spirit to the dust.

I know your burden

And all the while Jesus stands at your side and
lovingly says, “Cast your burden upon Me and
I will sustain you. For I am God Almighty. Because I bore
the load of your sin and condemnation up the
steep of Calvary, and the same power of
omnipotence, and the same strength of love that
bore it all for you then, is prepared to bear your
need and sorrow now. Therefore Roll it all upon Me!”

“Child of My Love! Lean hard! Let Me feel the
pressure of your care. Because I know your burden, child!
I said I shall be near, and while she/he leans on Me,
this burden shall be Mine, not theirs. So shall I keep
My child within the circling arms of My own love.
Here lay it down! Therefore Do not fear to impose it on a
shoulder which upholds the government of worlds!
Yet closer come! Because you are not near enough!
Therefore I would embrace your burden, so I might feel
My child reposing on My breast. You love Me! I know it.
Doubt not, then. But, loving me, lean hard!
