Liberty

 Through ups and downs: toils and snares

There is always something new that lies unaware

Up ahead on this journey we take

Our trials and tribulations we cannot escape

Though they are hard and seem rightly unfair

The heavy load is almost too much to bear

But I recall His word, and I know Jesus is right

 ”For My yoke is easy“ He said, “and My burden is light

Let Me take away all your stress and take away all your pain

Come lean on Me, my friend, so that none of that remains

For My grace is always sufficient and rest is found by My side

You have done a great job My soldier, but now it’s time to step aside”

As you let go of your battle and give it to Him

You realize He’s more equipped to bring that fight to an end

For nothing is too big for our Father to face

When He came and defeated death…He accomplished every race

What a fine message you've expressed here, to give the heavy things to God. And I like your rhyming scheme--the words are fresh, and since the rhymes are not too strict, it helps the flow. I am a little confused by the last line... what does "accomplished every race" mean?

This is beautifully written with such a powerful message...I am really in awe of how wonderfully you described what so many people, including myself, often forget. This is such a heartfelt reminder that God is in control. Prayers go out to you and your friend!

thank you for your feed back, much appreciated and warmly felt more than ever now that we're facing chemo.... @Suoaei, that last line has a very powerful meeting....when our Lord and Savior took our spot and died as our sacrifice...He beat every battle that we should ever face, every sickness, poverty, anxiety, condemnation....even death....everything that we as humans insist on "running a race against" because so often we do....well Jesus has actually accomplished every race for us and we are all running to win what's already been accomplished. When Jesus said "It is finished!!" I believe He meant it :) God Bless you all
