At The Foot Of The Cross was written in 2008. I wrote this one after receiving prayer for healing for back pain. The young woman praying for me said that she felt that I was very burdened and prayed for me to be released from the burdens. She was the second person who had said this to me. So I decided that I needed to take this seriously.
During a time of prayer at the Christian healing mission in London one of the people praying for me felt that the Lord was cutting off all the burdens that were weighing me down.
The chorus is the cry of my thankful heart. I’ve been freed from my burdens Jesus has transformed my life from the inside out through the sacrifice of the cross. I wanted a song that I could sing every day the word of God has lay down your burden and I will give you rest.
Matthew 11 verses 28 to 30
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. NASB
Are you tired? Worn out? Burned out on religion? Come to me. Get away with me and you’ll recover your life. I’ll show you how to take a real rest. Walk with me and work with me—watch how I do it. Learn the unforced rhythms of grace. I won’t lay anything heavy or ill-fitting on you. Keep company with me and you’ll learn to live freely and lightly.” The Message
