These Scriptures will Help You Cast Your Burdens unto Jesus
Scripture promises that we can cast our burdens on Jesus. What a blessing that is! What deep joy we have when we understand He always helps us through whatever burdens us because He cares co much for us!
Several years ago, the Watoto Children’s Choir came to my church and performed. I loved every song they sang but Cast Your Burdens stuck with me more than any other. In fact, their sweet singing of that song goes through my head every time I think of it, even now!
It’s not just the song, though. The understanding that we are loved so much that Jesus will carry our burdens for us frees us from a lifetime of being weighed down by worry.
In the Cast Your Burdens free retreat theme, I share with you many ideas to use for an entire retreat including song, craft, door prize, and prayer ideas. This post expands on the scriptures and provides a free printable that you could add to women’s retreat folders. Or, simply print them for your personal use to help you remember you are never alone!
