When the Burden Gets too Heavy

The heart, mind & body can only bear so much sorrow before the body begins to break down in some way.

Those who are grieving a loss, those who are caregivers for aging family members, those who are interceding for children or grandchildren who have gone astray, those who bear the load when sickness comes…They all need to understand the importance of self care.
Our bodies weren’t meant to continue to live with a constant burden of sorrow. When what is meant to be temporary becomes long-term, a breakdown of some kind is to be expected.
Please love one another well. Watch out for each other. Bear one another’s burden.
Offer to take someone to a doctor’s appointment when they are neglecting their own health to care for someone else’s, sit with a loved one so the caregiver can take a walk, offer the Hope of Heaven to those who are facing a terminal diagnosis for a family member.
Bring joy & laughter back the life of someone who is carrying a load that is breaking them down.
Galatians 6:2, 10 (KJV) Bear ye one another’s burdens, and so fulfil the law of Christ..
As we have therefore opportunity, let us do good unto all men, especially unto them who are of the household of faith.

  1. I have literally been up all night begging God to show me if I am doing the right thing. You see, later this morning I have to take my mother to a doc appt where she will be told that she needs to enter a nursing facility. I can no longer care for her because I am broken.
    God bless you for this blog posting; I was thinking about canceling the appt.


    1. Ah, Kristen, these things are SO hard! And we want to be all things to all people because we LOVE so much! I understand the turmoil you must be going through. If it weren’t for Doug, I would most likely be in the same position with Isaac. I will be praying for you today…that God will shine His light of peace on your path, to make each step clear. He is faithful. We can trust Him. And He loves you and your mom so much. ❤
