Lighten Your Burden


Lighten Your Burden

Lighten your burden
Get in His Word,
Take time to pray.

He will shield you
With His love,
Heavenly angels
From above.

When we have a lot of burdens, reading God’s Word and praying always helps us.     As the old hymn says, “Burdens Are Lifted at Calvary.”  When we are busy doing God’s business, He is busy doing our business.
