“Why bother anymore?”
snakes into my brain
there’s no use in giving it one more think
I guess I’ll just live in this horrible state.
“You can do this,” I promise.
Comes back His refrain.
Quietly and gently He lifts me up
setting me back onto a solid rock
whispering encouragement and love
lay down your burden for a fresh start.
Slowly I raise my tear streaked face
He holds out His hand with eyes of grace
there I lay my burden of weight
trading in my sorrows for joyous peace.
