Shoulders

There are days when my own words fail me, when my mind wanders aimlessly incapable of concentration, when my every thought is hijacked by something /someone else. These are the days I rely on the words of others to say so eloquently what I cannot at the moment.

The following words speak what my soul yearns to say but could not and have since brought much solace to calm my spirit. May they bring such peace to you as well. Enjoy!


When confusion’s my companion
And despair holds me for ransom
I will feel no fear
I know that You are near

When I’m caught deep in the valley
With chaos for my company
I’ll find my comfort here
‘Cause I know that You are near

My help comes from You
You’re right here, pulling me through
You carry my weakness, my sickness, my brokenness all on Your shoulders

My help comes from You
You are my rest, my rescue
I don’t have to see to believe that You’re lifting me up on Your shoulders

You mend what once was shattered
And You turn my tears to laughter
Your forgiveness is my fortress
Oh Your mercy is relentless

My help comes from You
You’re right here, pulling me through
You carry my weakness, my sickness, my brokenness all on Your shoulders

My help comes from You
You are my rest, my rescue
I don’t have to see to believe that You’re lifting me up on Your shoulders

  1. My kids chuckle when I post quotes of encouragement on my fridge, but sometimes these snippets really can help us feel better, or motivate us, or whatever the case may be. Glad you found some that lift your spirits.
