At the foot of the cross, I left my burdens
along with my shame and doubt
then I handed over what was left to Jesus
and He turned my life inside out.
Through bitter tears and deep sobbing,
confessions rolled down my cheeks
then He took from me my pride
and taught me to be spiritually meek.
He showed me the meaning of forgiveness
though compassion, mercy and grace
then He shined His light in my heart
and His love you could see on my face.
He opened my eyes to the meaning,
of trusting in something that we can’t see
then He filled me with His hope and joy
and promised one day in heaven will be.
For years, I spent my days wondering,
just what this Lord and Savior was about
ah, but that day I left my burdens with Jesus
He took ~ what was left of my doubt.
King James Version
“Now faith is the substance of things hoped for,
the evidence of things not seen.”
Deborah Ann Belka
