We all have different burdens to carry as we go through life. There are times in life when we feel like the burden is so great and we’re all alone. Other times we can feel the load lighten as we’re lifted up by those who love us.
Often we choose to forge on ahead by ourselves thinking we’re strong enough on our own to get up that mountain. But, why?
[Tweet “Jesus is always ready to help us carry our heavy load. “]
I’ve been so blessed to have many loved ones who have helped point me back to the great Counselor whenever I get off track. I have to be honest, that’s been more often in my past than I care to admit.
Two are better than one because a good return comes when two work together. If one of them falls, the other can help him up. But who will help the pitiful person who falls down alone? Ecclesiastes 4:9-10 (VOICE)
So the next time you have your head down, struggling up that mountain all alone, look up! Call out to Jesus. It doesn’t have to be fancy. Just be honest! Surround yourself with others who will help you lighten the load by praying you through it.
Do you need someone to stand with you in prayer for a “mountain” you’re facing? I would be happy to stand with you. Leave me a comment below and let me know how I can be praying for you.
Also, I’m so excited to share my dad’s newest music venture with you. My dad is a man of God with a faith that runs deep. I’m so blessed by the example he has set for all of us in the family. Please check out his music on YouTube.
On a family note, we’re trying to get in touch with a family member we’ve not been blessed to meet yet. My dad wrote a song for his granddaughter and is hoping by sharing it on social media her mom will eventually see it. If you feel led, we’d sure appreciate you sharing “Gabrielle’s song”.
