Bearing Burdens

Rock Creek Park, Erwin

“Tell him about the heartache,
And tell him the longings, too.
Tell him the baffled purpose
When we scarce know what to do.

Then leaving all our weakness
With the One divinely strong,
Forget that we bore a burden
And carry away a song.”

Phillips Brooks, 1835-1893
Episcopal bishop of Massachusetts



One thought on “Bearing Burdens

  1. And even when you don’t have the words to tell Him, rest in the assurance He still knows.

    “In the same way, the Holy Spirit helps us when we are weak. When we don’t know what to pray for as we ought, the Spirit himself intercedes for us with groanings too deep for words.”
    -Romans 8:26
