None of us were made to carry life’s loads alone. Yet, often we act as though we must.
Superwoman is a fictitious character, but we be often act as though she is real and someone to emulate, as we wrestle with this fear, and try and leap that stressful situation with a single bound. At least until fear overtakes and stress is too vast, and we crash. I know God looks at me sometimes, shakes his head and says, “Girl, I love you lots; so when will you learn I didn’t make you for this.”
I am so grateful for those in my life who haven’t allowed me to stay too long in “Superwoman” mode. There are those who know me and are willing to give me that look, while asking with that knowing glance, “How are you really doing?” I love those people. I can’t be fake with them, and I’m so grateful to God for that. All of us need someone like that in our lives!
This week we will explore how to be that kind of person for the one in our lives struggling right now. Once again I’d love your feedback. Your suggestions as to how you try to be that kind of person for someone else, or how you have grown to let such people be that kind of person for you are invaluable. We need each other!
Two people are better off than one, for they can help each other succeed. 10 If one person falls, the other can reach out and help. But someone who falls alone is in real trouble. 11 Likewise, two people lying close together can keep each other warm. But how can one be warm alone? 12 A person standing alone can be attacked and defeated, but two can stand back-to-back and conquer. Three are even better, for a triple-braided cord is not easily broken. Ecclesiastes 4:9-12 (NLT)
Looking forward to this week together!
