THE ALTAR

Psa. 55:22 "Cast thy burden upon the LORD, and he shall sustain thee: he shall never suffer the righteous to be moved."

************

Are you beset with worries,
Weighed down by life's cares?
Lay it on God's altar,
And, leave it there!

It's hard to come to this place,
This decision make;
So used to managing on our own,
His advice…we'll not take.

So, weighed down…beyond endurance,
Struggling is all we know;
Our happiness and health suffer,
Because we just won't let go.

Just as Abraham brought Isaac,
Unto the mountain top;
And laid him on the altar,
Did God's will…and didn't stop.

Because of Abraham's obedience,
Isaac was restored;
Given back to Abraham,
His faith increased…assured.

Father of faith…was Abraham,
God spoke and he obeyed;
Just think of where we'd be today,
Had Isaac…not upon the altar lay.

Mighty men of faith have gone before us,
All showing us the way;
When God speaks, we should listen,
Listen to all that He says.

We can struggle with our problems,
Our whole…entire life through;
And, in the end what have we,
Still our problems…nothing new.

Or, like Abraham, we can be obedient,
To God's altar bring;
All our cares…all life's struggles,
And, let our God restore again.

I have a special problem,
Close to my heart…it is;
Something I cannot change,
Though try and try, I did.

Can I trust my God enough,
And, to His altar bring;
This pain that is within my heart,
To Him…an offering.

God…in His time,
Makes all things new;
A perfect work He does,
Not just in me…but, also you.

So, first we must let go,
And give our God control;
Not taking back…when things look glum,
But, trusting Him to make the problem whole.

Lay it on God's altar,
And, remember to leave it there;
He does far-better work than we,
He always answers prayer.
