I’ve been in a world of pain, and I’m tired of it.
Sorrow is exhausting. You don’t realize how it drains your soul. You don’t realize that while sorrow and grieving are parts of our beings, the weight is not good. It’s not a gift from God. Burden isn’t something we are supposed to shoulder to no end.
I am grateful beyond compare when someone comes along at unexpected moments to take some, if not all, that burden from me. Knowing that you are not alone to carry this is part of what God wants us to realize. Recognizing that someone needs our help, an ear to listen, a shoulder to lean on, or a hand to hold, is what makes us the spiritual gifts from God. To help one another makes us not only an answer to someone’s prayers, but also lifts our souls to what God wants for us from day one.
My burdens have not disappeared. My sadness will likely always be with me. The knowledge and sense that I am not going to go through each day alone on my despair, however, has given me hope. All I need is hope. Hope for something better. Faith that I’m not ever going through life by alone in my thoughts.
I’m attaching here a few resources to anyone who needs something. We can all do something for someone. Each day we are called to do at least one good thing for someone. Spread His love without shouting it from the mountains. In His quiet humble ways do we find His amazing spiritual love for us and each other.
