Pack Up Your Sorrows

David McCasland tells us, "During the turbulent years of the 1960s, popular music in America was a strange mixture of protest and patriotism. 

Some songs lashed out against war, greed, and injustice in society, while others affirmed duty to country and traditional values.

But 'Pack Up Your Sorrows,' written by Richard Faina and Pauline Baez Marden, seemed to fit all of the categories with its focus on the quest for personal peace.

The refrain said the following: Well, if somehow you could pack up your sorrows, / And give them all to me / You would lose them, I know how to use them, / Give them all to me.

Perhaps everyone hoped that someone really could bring them peace.

The good news is that there is Someone who can!

Isaiah 53 is a prophetic picture of Israel's promised Messiah.

Christians see its fulfillment in the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ.

"Surely He has borne our griefs and carried our sorrows....He was wounded for our transgressions, He was bruised for our iniquities; the chastisement for our peace was upon Him, and by His stripes we are healed: Is. 53:4-5.

Jesus took our sins and sorrows on Himself so that we could be forgiven and have peace with God.

Will you give Him your sorrows today?"

"Never a burden that He does not carry;
Never a sorrow that He does not share'
Whether the days may be sunny or dreary,
Jesus is always there." Lillenas

No sorrow is too heavy for our Savior to bear."

Some notes I took on Rick Sinclair‘s message on 2/26/12: 

The Bible declares the glory of Jesus Christ

He’s more glorious than Moses

He’s greater than angels

He’s the express image of the Father

He purged our sins and sat down by the Father in Heaven

He’s the Son of God

He’ll reign over His Kingdom

The anointing of gladness is upon Him

There were signs and wonders to prove Who He was

He tasted death for everyone

He is Faithful

He is able to save us

We’re brought into the relationship of sons of God by Him

He comes to our need

He has compassion on us

Through Him we can know God

He offered Himself once and for all on the Cross

We’re saved by His Blood

Through Him we have eternal life!

We have the responsibility to respond to what Christ has done! We are to express our approval and admiration through praise and worship.

There are many recorded messages of Rick Sinclair, Daniel Paladin, Jamie Sinclair and Ben Levenduskie on

Check the audio messages for a variety of subjects. 

Prayer:    Father, help me remember You're the One Who can best help me. May I be quick to call on Your Name for guidance through what comes my way, especially when it causes me pain and grief. In Jesus' Name, amen.

Our Scripture for today: Jer. 29:11 "For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, says the LORD, thoughts of peace and not of evil, to give you a future and a hope."

Today’s quote: Our Daily Bread 2/19/13

“Tune your anxious heart to patience,
Walk by faith where sight is dim’
Loving God, be calm and trustful
And leave everything to Him. –Chambers

Patience means awaiting God’s time
and trusting God’s love.

Our thought for today: God meets us at our low place. Look for Him!
