Here–put your troubles here!

Here–put your troubles here!

(Charles Spurgeon)

“Cast your burden on the Lord–and He will sustain you.” Psalm 55:22

Cast your troubles where you have cast your sins. You have cast your sins onto Jesus–cast your troubles there also!

As soon as the trouble comes, quick, the first thing–tell it to your heavenly Father! Remember, that the longer you take telling your trouble to God–the more your peace will be impaired. The longer the frost lasts–the more likely the ponds will be frozen.

Oh! It is a happy way of smoothing sorrow, when we can cast our burden upon the Lord. Oh, you agitated Christians, do not dishonor your religion by always wearing a ‘frown of concern’. Come, cast your burden upon the Lord.

I see you staggering beneath a weight which He would not feel.
What seems a crushing burden to you–would be nothing but a bit of dust to Him!

See! The Almighty bends His shoulders, and He says: Here–put your troubles here!

“Cast all your cares upon Him–because He cares about you!” 1 Peter 5:7
