Blessed day by day be the [uc]Lord[/uc],
who bears our burdens...
The man who was driving me to the airport after one of my speaking engagements started talking, out of the blue, about all the people in all the other cars on the road. "Isn't it amazing" he mused, "that every person out there has a story, a journey that they're on?" Which is something I think about all the time myself and could connect with.
My hairdresser shared, out of the blue, that the guy she's dating is a widower with a child and what a struggle that is--something I can directly relate to. Then she started talking about her mother's family tussling over their grandparents' estate. I've experienced the estate part, if not the tussling, and I think what I had to offer might have helped the situation.
Connections are everywhere, and as we discover those connections and share our experiences, we work with the Lord, sharing each other's burdens.
Lord, work through me, I pray, to help others bear their burdens today.
