When in Hard Times We Are Better Together

Do others know of the burdens you are carrying? Do they know about hard days at work? Does anyone know the weight you are bearing as you care for your elderly parents?  How many know of a surgery you are facing?  How many know of a pain you are enduring?

It is understandable that when others know of the burdens that you carry, you might be overwhelmed by conversations and questions. You might even be wondering if others will question your faith.

Asking people to pray brings a reality to the Lord’s command that we “Rejoice with those who rejoice, weep with those who weep.”  (Romans 12:15)

When you hear how God is moving His children to pray for you, your heart will be encouraged.  How do you feel when someone comes up to you and asks about your situation?

When others hear of how God is strengthening your heart to endure, they will be encouraged in their crucible experiences.
