~JESUS WILL CARRY YOU~
"Come to me, all you who labor and are heavily burdened, and I will give you rest."
------Matthew 11: 28
************ ********* *****
Do you feel troubled or oppressed today? Do you feel you cannot find your way?
Don't be dismayed, for Jesus will carry you. Are you brokenhearted or sad because
of circumstances of life? Jesus knows all about it. Not one tear goes unnoticed
by our Blessed Savior.
If there is trouble anywhere, you can be assured the Lord will help when you take
your cares to Him in prayer. The old song is so true, "Oh, what needless pain we
bear......all because we do not carry, everything to God in prayer." We don't have
to bear our heavy burdens alone. We have one who will lift us up and give us a
new song of joy.
There are people everywhere today who are lonely, depressed, and feel they have
no hope in life. Yet, Jesus came and died for them. Because He lives, we can
face each new tomorrow with hope. Because He lives, we too can have a life
more abundant in His amazing grace.
When you feel you can no longer walk on, the Lord will carry you. His steps
are always sure and will lead us in the right paths. We may have to walk
through low valleys, but Jesus will walk with us all the way The highest mountain
is no problem with Jesus as the wind beneath our wings. He'll lift us up above
the shadows of this life. No matter what life may bring, we can always depend on the
Lord and claim His promises, if we abide in Him.
Let Him give you peace today. The joy of the Lord is our strength. His
love will light up our lives and drive the darkness away as we let Him be Lord of
all. It is a real joy and blessing to know that we have one who will be with us in
the darkest hour. When the going gets tough, run to Jesus and you'll find He
is always enough. With the Lord in our lives, we'll make it through to the
As we look back, may we remember those times when the Lord has carried
us through. And, may we always follow the footprints of Jesus, where ever
they may lead us as we walk through this life. We may not know what the
future holds, but we do know who holds the future. In Him, we can have
blessed assurance and know everything will be alright in Christ.
Keep your hand in the nail scarred hand of Jesus. There really will be
peace in the valley for those who keep on "keeping on" for the Lord.
Blessings in Christ,
