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.
