When Peter was shopping in a store, he noticed the owner of the store piling a lot of boxes on a boy’s arms. The pile looked so high and so heavy. Peter looked at the boy saying, “The pile is becoming so heavy on you, poor son.”
The boy looked at Peter and smiled at him replying, “Thank you sir for your concern but I’m sure that my father knows how much I can carry.”
Peter was humbled by the answer. He realized that no matter how much concern he showed, he could not equal the concern of a father for his son.
My Savior, here I am extending my hands to You.
You can put all the burdens on them,
You, who love my soul,
And know my capability more than anybody else.
You will not let me carry more than I can tolerate.
You are my Father, my Savior and The Healer of my soul.
It Is Jesus Who Carries Burdens
