Daily in Your Presence - June 17

Day 169


Praise be to the Lord, to God our Savior,
who daily bears our burdens.
Psalms 68:19

My child, how I love to carry your burdens! Your shoulders are much too weak to bear that weight. I should know. I created you for My glory, and with God-shaped needs. Like a loving father with his child, I welcome you into My arms the moment you run to Me. Let Me be a burden-bearing tree for you. Daily, hang up your worries and cares upon My branches. But don't forget to leave them there. I'll know what to do with them.

I know my problems are only opportunities from You to help me grow. But when heavy loads weigh me down, You're there as my burden bearer. There's no problem too difficult for You to solve, and no burden too heavy for You to bear. Lord, I thank You for carrying me when I cannot walk.


Compassion is always in fashion.
