Featured song: He Will Carry You, by Scott Wesley Brown, from his 1983 album Signature.

sorrowLife brings many joys, but it also brings many sorrows. We suffer sickness, loss of friends and family, and pain from things we do to ourselves and things others do to us. We put on the mask that tries to make it clear to the rest of the world that we are handling everything just fine, thank you, but deep inside we feel like we are dying.

Jesus never promised there would be a life with no trials or problems. He did say that He would be there with me through every step of the way. Nothing — nothing! — would be so big or bad that He would be unable to carry me through it.

Today’s song, sung by Scott Wesley Brown, affirms that promise. And it seems all the more powerful accompanied by the commentary by the words of Larry Black, from whose radio program it was recorded, over 20 years ago.

There is no problem too big, God cannot solve it
There is no mountain too tall, He cannot move it
There is no storm too dark, God cannot calm it
There is no sorrow too deep, He cannot soothe it

If He carried the weight of the world
Upon His shoulders
I know, my brother, that He will carry you

If he carried the weight of the world
Upon His shoulders
I know, my sister, that He will carry you

He said, “Come unto Me
All who are weary
And I will give you rest.”


He will carry you
He will carry

Signature, 1983, Scott Wesley Brown
