THE STORY BEHIND THE SONG
‘Never agreed to carry this load..’ That is how I felt. Multiple family illnesses, financial worries, Covid 19, marital strain…..all seemed to hit at once. I didn’t expect this or agree to it but as we all know, life doesn’t ask us. Things just happen.
I can relate somewhat to David in the bible. Sometimes his Psalms can start off with such a mournful tone but then it changes. His words go from despair to hope and as I put pen to paper, that is how I felt. Hopeful. God reminded me that HE is strongest in my weakness. I just have to lean on Him. I just have to stop trying to do things in my own strength.
I’m still leaning on Him. Some things are better now, some things are still a work in progress. I’m looking back and reminding myself of all the times God has come through before and because of that, I know He will come through again.
God is solid. Firm. Unlike the rest of life that can change and feel unsteady, I can lean on God knowing He won’t move; he won’t let me fall.
You can lean on Him too.
