“Truth looked at both of them. “Now do you understand? As you walked, you became accustomed to the weight of these so-called treasures—even though they slowed you down and became heavier as you went. Some of these burdens you didn’t even know you had in your packs when you set out. You thought others were harmless and light. In any case, you need to talk about your hurts and your treasures in the redemptive light of the King, so they will lose their heaviness. It will take a long time because you have carried them for so long. But it will make your way much easier.”
–Annie Wald in Walk with Me
Even to your old age and gray hairs I am He,
I am He who will sustain you.
I have made you and I will carry you;
I will sustain you and I will rescue you.
Give me a stout heart to bear my own burdens.
Give me a willing heart to bear the burdens of others.
Give me a believing heart to cast all burdens upon Thee, O Lord.
