On my mind today ...

          Days are filled with sorrow and care,
          Hearts are lonely and drear;
          Burdens are lifted at Calvary,
          Jesus is very near.

            Chorus
            Burdens are lifted at Calvary,
            Calvary, Calvary,
            Burdens are lifted at Calvary,
            Jesus is very near.

          Cast your care on Jesus today,
          Leave your worry and fear;
          Burdens are lifted at Calvary,
          Jesus is very near.

            Chorus
            Burdens are lifted at Calvary,
            Calvary, Calvary,
            Burdens are lifted at Calvary,
            Jesus is very near.

          Troubled soul, the Saviour can see,
          Ev'ry heartache and tear;
          Burdens are lifted at Calvary
          Jesus is very near.

            Chorus
            Burdens are lifted at Calvary,
            Calvary, Calvary,
            Burdens are lifted at Calvary,
            Jesus is very near.
How wonderful is it to be able fall upon God's grace. He has lifted my burden! A blog I follow reminded me of this verse that is totally applying to me today:

"A calm and undisturbed mind and heart are the life and health of the body, but envy, jealousy, and wrath are like rottenness of the bones." Proverbs 14:30 (Amplified Bible)

Praise God that we can have peace because of Calvary!

Is everything okay? Or is this just kind of in general??? Hope all is well!

I'm thankful that our burdens are lifted at Calvary - Praise God! But I hope you don't have too many burdens today.

"Wrath is like rottenness" - that's a good one to remember!
