In our disturbed world there is ample opportunity to become overcome with worry, fear, and hopelessness. There is hope for the troubled soul. Every heartache, heavy burden, circumstance, and disquieting thought we can lift up in prayer, and lay them at Jesus feet. He is able to handle it much better than we can.
Pick Up, Lift Up and Lay them Down
Pick it up and then lay it down,
Bring every situation in your life to higher ground.
Every heartache, heavy burden and disquieting thought that makes a stand,
And every circumstance that invades your land,
Pick them up and lift them up to the One that hears and answers prayer;
Then lay them down at His feet and leave them there.
When the pain of them again come to mind;
Repeat the instructions yet another time.
When you do this with faith within,
The sun will shine bright inside of you again.
Pick up, lift up, and lay them down,
Turn away from them and walk on higher ground.
Your inner strength and inner convictions are infused with trust and faith,
That the One you love and serve does not hesitate.
Jesus is able to carry all your woes with ease each day.
Great is the victory when you live this way.
Placing in your mind things good and true,
Enjoying the blessings all around you.
Be careful for nothing; but in every thing by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God. And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.
Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls. For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.
