THE LAW OF CHRIST… April 12, 2015

“Bear ye one another’s burdens, and so fulfill the law of Christ.”  Galatians 6:2

In regards to the time when I was struggling with big issues with my teenagers, I learned another important lesson.

I was in a small group at my church, and every time I went to small group, the Lord would whisper to me to tell my sisters in small group about my problems during prayer time.  For weeks, I would say, “no.”  I was ashamed of the things that were going on with my teens, and was so afraid my friends would judge me.

Finally, one night, I said yes to God, and shared my problems with my friends, asking for prayer.

The response was amazing!  They love me, and helped bear my burdens.  I learned so much about what the church is designed to be through that experience!  And, I found myself wondering why on earth I had kept all that to myself through that terrible time!
