Have you ever been checking out of the grocery store with a dozen bags of groceries and struggling to get them all transported to the car? Then a uniformed employee shows up to help you. What a relief! Or perhaps lugging a heavy load to the curb in front of your house – and your neighbor dashes over to help you carry the weight. Whew! What a blessing. There’s nothing like having someone recognize the burden you carry and come alongside to help you. Just the fact of having a companion to bear your load makes it easier to press forward. Stopping for a moment each day to center on God’s love for you and the companionship of Jesus Christ reminds you that He helps you. Funny how the burden seems lighter and more bearable when you know He’s with you. It takes on a new perspective. The load may not be lighter – He’s just helping you carry the weight!
