the burden carried is not alone….

Today I carry a heavy heart for my sis. She is going into unknown waters with her son and is having to trust people that she does not know to do the right thing for her baby.

 I started my day at 3:30 this morning because as I tossed and turned, I knew that that the best thing to do was quit fighting trying to sleep when I could use this time while I was awake and get busy with God. So, I came and sat on my couch with a blanket and told the Lord, “I DO TRUST YOU, I DO HAVE FAITH THAT YOU WILL COME THRU AND BE THE MIRACULOUS GOD THAT YOU ARE, but I still want to cry.” So, as I go thru my day praying over sister and the load that she is carrying,as is the rest of the family, I got a few minutes before I needed to get about my duties in the salon the word “burden” kept coming to my mind.

 So, this verse popped up, Numbers 11:17 17 I will come down and talk to you there. I will take some of the Spirit that is upon you, and I will put the Spirit upon them also. They will bear the burden of the people along with you, so you will not have to carry it alone.

As much as I cannot relate to Sha right now with her anguished Momma’s heart, I do believe that the Lord spreads the burden so that Sha will not have to carry it alone. This is why I feel such a heaviness for her this day along with my weeping mother and father whom I spoke to today who are also scared for Dawson and see the heaviness Sha is carrying,as I know the other sisters are too carrying.

This family,as much as we don’t see one another because we are spread so far apart when one laughs we laugh with, when one cries we cry with, when one fails at something we encourage, when one accomplishes something we rejoice, when one hurts, we hurt too, when one needs a miracle we get to our knees, when one needs a word of encouragement He sends it, the Lord spreads that ‘burden’, that ‘anguish’, that ‘rejoicing’ one to another so that we may all carry it.

These parents, three sisters of mine along with 22 kids among us love Jesus and walk with Him in all different places but when it comes to our heart? It’s about bringing Him the glory and counting on who He is in each one of us……

SO grateful for all the friends who stand in the gap and pray along side.

  Sister and family!
