BURDEN TO BEAR


I just finished praying and as I heard my own words I realized what I was praying for was a little selfish.

“I am tired of feeling in pain all the time and the burden it’s too much too carry!”

I was stunned.

Who was I to complain when Jesus carried his own cross and died for us? He carried our sins and burdens. Frankly the pain I was in was minute compared to others who were fighting for their own life!

In that moment I felt so relieved that I brought my fears about my pain before My Heavenly Father. I knew I was never alone but being quiet about my pain made it worse!

Within moments peace settled over me and my body began to relax from pain.

What a blessing!

I’m going to sleep now. 😘

    Today this man was tailgating me and I moved lanes so he could proceed to tailgate the person in front of me instead. As he passed I saw the handicapped sign. My irritation lessened because I know what pain is like and chronic pain…. well. I understand it.

    I had a neighbor who was the sweetest most selfless person I ever knew. So kind and full of joy and love for everyone. She was also a nurse. I noticed that she was becoming irritable and distant and complaining and doing things a bit out of character. This went on for months escalating and escalating. Her behavior became more and more childish and selfish and then one day she dies suddenly of a brain tumor.

    I’m not sure why I’m relating this. The man today and your post reminded me that pain does weird things to people. I’ve seen it work conversely too. I’ve seen people in pain that are so humble and compassionate and open to the will of God. Even as that will involves their suffering.

    I know nothing except that I enjoy your writings. Your sense of humor bordering on malicious but always hysterical. Your quick wit. Your sass. Your smutty little brain.

    I hope you can always find reprieve. You deserve it.
