What To Do When Your Burden Is Overwhelming

My Utmost His Highest

"Cast your burden on the Lord . . ." (Psalm 55:22) 

If we set out to serve God and do His work but get out of touch with Him, the sense of responsibility we feel will be overwhelming and defeating. But if we will only roll back on God the burdens He has placed on us, He will take away that immense feeling of responsibility, replacing it with an awareness and understanding of Himself and His presence. “Cast your burden on the Lord . . .” You have been bearing it all, but you need to deliberately place one end on God’s shoulder. . .
