Shoulder the Weight

God is not afraid of your emotions and your pain. When the load overwhelms you, let the Lord carry you on His shoulders. Give Him your cares and let Him take care of you.

Isaiah 63:9 — In all their affliction he was afflicted, and he personally saved them.a]”>[a] In his love and pity he redeemed them and lifted them up and carried them through all the years.

Luke 15:4-5 — So Jesus used this illustration: “If you had a hundred sheep and one of them strayed away and was lost in the wilderness, wouldn’t you leave the ninety-nine others to go and search for the lost one until you found it? And then you would joyfully carry it home on your shoulders. 

Psalm 81:6 — I will relieve your shoulder of its burden; I will free your hands from their heavy tasks.

Matthew 11:28-30 — Come to Me, all who are weary and heavily burdened [by religious rituals that provide no peace], and I will give you rest [refreshing your souls with salvation]. Take My yoke upon you and learn from Me [following Me as My disciple], for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest (renewal, blessed quiet) for your souls. For My yoke is easy [to bear] and My burden is light.”
