Lay Down Your Burdens

Colin MacIver

We hear this all the time—just lay down your burdens at God feet and he’ll take care of it—but it takes on new meaning when you hear it sung by your little daughter. Colin’s daughter sang to him:

I cast all my cares upon You

I lay all of my burdens

Down at Your feet

And any time I don’t know what to do

I will cast all my cares upon You

-Cares Chorus by Kelly Willard

Colin connects his own desire to take care of his child to that of God the father, who wants to take care of us.

When you don’t know what to do, sing this song unto God and lay down your burdens before him.

Snippet from the Show

Christ is pleased to carry all of our worries and our burdens and our doubts to Calvary, to the Cross, so that they can be crucified with him, and we can be raised up with him.


Meet Your Host, Colin MacIver:

Colin is an enthusiastic transplant to vibrant Louisiana, where he lives with his beautiful wife Aimee and two energetic children, Leo and Zélie. His juggling act involves being a husband, a dad, a teacher, a youth minister, a musician and a national Ascension content creator and trainer.

In his spare time, he eats too many crawfish, savors king cake, plays one-on-one kickball with his son, and tries, for the life of him, to properly load the dishwasher.
