Carry On

Within the last week, I have seen posts and received texts from family and friends who are carrying heavy burdens. Cancer still ravages my dear friend, my mom’s illness is flaring again and it will be a month until her surgery. Another friend is struggling with loss, exhaustion, and major changes in her life.

Once again, I am on my knees on their behalf. Praying for their spirits, for their situations, and for their immediate families as they walk through this pain.

I am still far away, but I also know that God is near. So, I will choose to carry their hurts and their burdens and concerns straight to the Cross. To the God whose love and healing covers everything.

Galatians 6:2 says it best, Carry each other’s burdens, and in this way you will fulfill the law of Christ.

This is the kind of thing I am glad to carry.
