I have a little dream.
A dream to have this blog community meet together one day for a cup of joe. I want to hug all of you, soul-deep.
Let’s do that in eternity, shall we? All meet up for soul-deep hugs?
Great, its a date!
In the meantime, can we pray for each other? Today?
Honestly, my heart is just heavy. Needing prayer.
Can I share my load with you?
Bear one another’s burdens, and so fulfill the law of Christ. Galatians 5:2
Bear (bastazō) means to take up with the hands. To take up in order to carry or bear, to put upon one’s self (something) to be carried. To sustain, i.e. uphold, support. To bear away, carry off.
Fulfilling the law of Christ is to carry one another’s burdens. I’m in.
Burdens (Baros) means heaviness, weight, burden, trouble.
We are to uphold and support one another and relieve each other of heaviness, weight, and trouble. And carry it off.
One of my best friends is a weight-lifting machine. She is the perfect balance of Jesus-lovin’, Bible readin’, beauty, brains and fitness. My Christian Jillian Michaels. She is quite amazing. I am NOT exaggerating when I say she could pick me up, over her head, and throw me. Thank GOD she doesn’t. But let me tell you what she does, instead.
She bears my burdens. She picks up my heaviness, in prayer, in servant-hearted friendship, puts it upon herself and throws it off. Fulfilling the law of Christ.
I am NO Jillian Michaels, but I do have the strength to carry your burdens. We have the resurrected power of Christ living in us.
Who needs Jillian when you’ve got Jesus?
You are a weigh lifter all your own.
So here’s my weight…..
Please pray for my sweet Mamaw. Yesterday she had a “spell” (as she calls it). Her nurse is thinking it was a small stroke. We go to the doctor today. I love this woman, I tell you. My most valuable inheritance.
It is difficult rearranging life to get her to the doctor. Please pray that the Lord would meet us where we are, give me wisdom for her and balance for my family.
NOW IT IS YOUR TURN. Pleeeaaassseee let us pray for you. No matter how big or small the need, if you feel led, post a comment or email me. I can copy and paste your request here.
Thank you for reading my crazy blog.
I can’t wait to pray for you today.
