Extra Baggage

Release the heavy cargo
you attempt to bear alone...
no wonder you're weighed down
and weary to the bone!

You shoulder extra baggage
yet you know you shouldn't try...
our Lord was meant to carry
the load for you and I.

Cast your cares on Jesus
and in exchange you'll see
your burdens will be lighter,
for His yoke fits perfectly!

Matthew 11:29&30 "Take My yoke upon you, let Me teach you.  I am humble and gentle, and you will find rest for your souls.  For My yoke fits perfectly and My burden is light."

About the Poet
Christian since 1973, widowed in 2007, but by the divine appt. of God, I married a wonderful, godly widower in Oct. 2010. Three grown, married sons and eight grandchildren. My first love is Jesus who inspires my pen, for apart from Him I can do nothing! I desire to honor the Lord and edify readers thru poetry He inspires.
