Heavy Heart

1 Peter 4:8-10 Above all, keep loving one another earnestly, since love covers a multitude of sins. Show hospitality to one another without grumbling. As each has received a gift, use it to serve one another, as good stewards of God's varied grace:

 So many people around me are hurting today. People having cancer scares or actually battling cancer. Others falling into deep pits of depression and others just so lost and unhappy. We are called to encourage each other. To intercede in pray for one another. God wants to hear from us. He wants us to place all of our trust in Him to know that He has got this. Sometimes we get so wrapped up in our own struggles and worries that we fail to see the hurt around us. Believe me I know. I have been there. This woe is me mentality is a vicious cycle. Yes we do legitimately need prayers and do go through rough patches but are we becoming like a horse with blinders on that we can't see what is going on around us?
With all that being said I challenge you to take your focus off of your struggles and reach out to others around you hurting. Give them an ear, a hug, a bag of groceries. Be a blessing to them. We as the Body are to use our gifts and talents to edify God. Not keep it to ourselves. I would love to hear back from you and what is on your heart.
