A Safe Savior Soothes a Sad Soul


“I am leaving you with a gift—peace of mind and heart.
And the peace I give is a gift the world cannot give.
So don’t be troubled or afraid.”
John 14:27 NLT


A Weary Soul Weeps

Dear Jesus,
I want so much not to worry
About everything and anything.
I want to believe
You have all things
In Your Hands.

I don’t want to be afraid
Of trusting YOU.

Forgive me, Lord,
But sometimes my heart
Is so weary of trying
To let go of my control.
I’m so afraid to give
The reins of my life
Over to anyone.

I don’t want to be afraid
Of handing them over to YOU.

Please help me to stop the flow of this worry
And allow the faucet of Your love
To wash over me continually,
Washing away all doubts and fears.

I don’t want to be afraid
To let go and let GOD.

In Jesus arms

A Safe Savior Soothes

Oh my precious child,
You will always be safe with Me;
In My arms is true rest
From all the worry and fear
You daily wrestle with.

Rest, My beloved child, rest,
Rest your weary head and heart
On My peace-giving shoulder.

You are safe with Me
Always and Forever.
I already paid the price
For sin, shame, and fear,
Worries and doubts;
They can no longer defeat you.

Rest, My beloved child, rest,
Rest your weary head and heart
On My power-giving shoulder.

Cast all at the foot of the Cross
On which I died and gave you life.
And remember I see and know everything,
And I am powerfully alive
To still your fears of trusting.

Rest, My beloved child, rest,
Rest your weary head and heart
On My trustworthy shoulder.

These burdens are far too heavy for you to carry.
You don’t need to let them weigh you down into despair.
Let go, My precious child, and let Me handle them.
I long for the weary and heavy-laden
To come to Me, to trust
I have power to carry all for you.

Rest, My beloved child, rest,
Rest your weary head and heart
On My Almighty shoulder.



Every Household Has Its Hidden Pain

Praying we will let Jesus carry our burdens,
