Colossians 3:12-14 NKJV

"Therefore, as the elect of God, holy and beloved, put on tender mercies, kindness, humility, meekness, longsuffering; bearing with one another, and forgiving one another, if anyone has a complaint against another; even as Christ forgave you, so you also must do. But above all these things put on love, which is the bond of perfection."

My heart is heavy-My spirit is worn.
My feet are tired-My head pounds.

Who’s burden is this to carry?
Am I not supposed to bear my own load?

We are all part of the body, responsible for the path You set out.
Is it possible for the hand to help the eye?
Or is the eye all alone?
1 Corinthians 12

Who’s burden is this to carry?
Am I not solely accountable to my Lord?

We are meant to work with others, loving them as You love us.
Is it wrong to ask for assistance?
Or is that misusing this love?
Luke 10:25-37

We are the recipients of sacrificial love, in need of Your salvation.
Is it wrong to lean on others?
Or is that disrespecting You?
Galatians 6:8-10

“My child, with this I leave you:
I AM ‘a stronghold in times of trouble.’ Psalm 9:9
‘[I] demonstrate [my] own love for [you] in this’ Romans 5:8
‘Christ died and returned to life.’ Romans 14:9

“So, little one,
Walk in the way of love, just as Christ loved…and gave Himself up as a fragrant offering.’ Ephesians 5:2
‘Be devoted to one another in love.’ Romans 12:10
‘Serve one another humbly in love.’ Galatians 5:13

“Yes, child, it’s OK to ask for help–please ask Me!
No one’s burden involves just himself.
You do your part, open your heart.
And I will work all things for the good of those who love Me.”
Galatians 6:2-5, Romans 8:28

Our God is indeed great Who can turn pain into a medium for love!

“This is how we know what love is: Jesus Christ laid down His life for us. And we ought to lay down our lives for our brothers and sisters.” 1 John 3:16 NIV

    I personally don’t think it is wrong to ask for assistance or to lean on others. We all need it from time to time! Whom better to lean on than our Rock? Even if we can’t quickly do away with the thorn in our side, His grace is sufficient. More than sufficient. I believe it carves within us a deeper capacity to love. Thanks for this post!
