I Am Your Pillar
By Christine Hare Tate
My shoulders will carry the burdens your bear
My yoke is easy, do not despair.
Why have you chosen to worry and whine
When I said to cling to the Vine?
I am your pillar lean on Me,
Run not to men for sympathy.
I’ve deposited My Spirit in you,
Submit to the work I’m trying to do.
All carnal efforts to figure Me out
Will always result in confusion and doubt.
Depend on Me daily or you will find
Constant struggle and no peace of mind.
When you stop resisting Me,
You shall walk in victory!
“Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy and my burden is light.”
