Burdens Gone Right Side Up

The burden of leadership is heaviest when no one wants to follow. This is an ideal time to wallow? Give the devil place when you were called to lead by grace. Swallow that down before your spiraling downward finds you eye to eye with a capable adversary who's adept at gaining ground. No time for moping around I hear a sound like wildlife afar in a crisp winter's day. It's the hand of God removing the burden of the day. Praise God for end of one and the hope of another. Free over bond that's how my heart and mind respond my faith causes me to run on and on on and on. As I recall that His burden is light and easy man I go on and the yoke of bondage keeps me no longer in bondage. I thank the Lord for the privilege of leadership no matter how rough it gets. His power is made perfect in my weakness so this day I put away my weakness for His greatness as it manifests in my weakness. Burdens down Lord. Burdens down my head is going down Lord. Humbly I go down Lord to see this day no more. To see this day no more Lord. Now my burden done gone away.

I want you to know
one thing.

You know how this is:

at the crystal moon, at the red branch
of the slow autumn at my window,
