Heavy Burdens… Like Weight on Our Shoulders

This is for those who have been wounded by abuses and their weight has become an issue for them. Some turn to anorexia or bulimia while many others turn to overeating. These are all caused by deep wounds affecting their self-esteem and leading many to depression. We don’t have to carry these burdens any more. God wants to help us all.. we just have to trust Him.

Heavy burdens…
like weight on our shoulders…
aren’t meant to be carried…
like big enormous boulders.
For the weights we carry…
in our spiritual fight…
may be evidenced by weight…
in the natural light.
For many have burdens…
from the person they marry.
And as they’re abused and broken…
it adds to the weight they carry.
But God knows…
He sees the wounds and the cause…
and though anorexic or overweight…
He sees all with no flaws.
He sees every heart…
and the wounds inflicted on each.
And He heals and restores…
as overcoming we reach.
So don’t be concerned…
with the negative thoughts of man.
Just trust God with your future…
and on His Word we can stand.

“Come to me, all who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you, and learn from me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.” Matthew 11:28-30

“Give your burdens to the LORD, and he will take care of you. He will not permit the godly to slip and fall.” Psalm 55:22

“…casting all your care upon Him, for He cares for you.” 1 Peter 5:7

Dear Lord, help us to cast our cares upon You. Help us to realize that we are not supposed to carry the load that so many of us carry. That we are not responsible for the actions of others and should never hold onto the negative words spoken against us. That we are the righteousness of God in Christ. That we can yoke up with Christ for His Yoke is easy and His burden is light. Lord, bring healing ans restoration to all who have struggled with the abuses of their past and lead them into their futures with You beginning today… in Jesus’ Name. Amen.
