Burdened Beyond Measure

Some imagine that living is easy enough,
Life surely cannot be all that tough!
Yet there are times when we go through tribulation,
And no thoughts are on jubilation.

“Stretched beyond strength, burdened beyond measure,”
This is sometimes experienced in life’s endeavour.
The heart falters and even despairs of life.
Wondering what is the purpose of such strife.

The mind pauses and recalls deliverance in the past,
God will surely send grace and enable us to last.
He wants us to exercise our faith and our hope,
Our faith in Him will enable us to cope.

Thank God for brethren who pray alongside,
Their prayers will sustain us in our stride.
When feeling burdened beyond measure,
Exercise faith amidst great pressure!
