Bearing Our Burdens

tired student

Praise be to the Lord, to God our Savior, who daily bears our burdens (Psalm 68:19).

A burden, according to the dictionary, is “that which is carried” or “that which is borne with difficulty.”

The pressures of a hectic semester, deadlines for major projects, relationship struggles, and health problems are just a few examples of burdens carried by CIU students.

If you stop and think for a minute, you could probably come up with a substantial list of burdens that are currently weighing you (or people you know) down.  Stress and difficulties are a normal part of life on earth, but sometimes those worries become a considerably heavy load. 

But what an incredible comfort it is to know that we have a God who is both willing and able to bear our burdens on a daily basis.

He is strong enough to carry your burdens today. Will you let Him?
