You have unveiled your fears to His ministers and to His saints, and still they torment, and still they distress you. He says, “Bring them here to Me.” He will not repel your doubts nor chide your fears, but, as of old, He will tenderly meet them, gently deal with them, entirely remove them, and calm your perturbed and trembling heart upon the love and repose of His own

~Octavius Winslow

Surely he has borne our griefs and carried our sorrows;” (Is. 53:4a)

casting all your anxieties on him, because he cares for you.” (1 Pet. 5:7)

From the very beginning all the way to the very end of our salvation, our God is a burden bearing God. He bore our sorrows on this earth while we still despised and rejected Him. He  bears our sorrows and burdens throughout our Christian walk. Our God is a God who welcomes all the burdens that we can heap upon Him!

Honor and glorify our Christ by letting Him do what He wants to do: bear your burdens!
