There was a time today where the world stood still. I lost a sister in Christ today from a tragic accident.
I was on my way to get coffee with someone when we got the news. People from our BCM came and joined together in prayer.
During the first few prayers, it felt like the world stood still. But also the sense of prayer overwhelmed all of us. Everyone was crying. Everyone joined in the crying movement.
With this sense of community, I’m reminded of the verse Galatians 6:2
“Bear one another’s burdens, and so fulfill the law of Christ.”
Bearing each other’s burdens is taking their griefs and becoming your own griefs.
Bearing each other’s burdens is taking their toughest times and becoming your own toughest times.
Bearing each other’s burdens is taking each other’s heartaches and heartbreaks and becoming your own heartaches and heartbreaks.
My friends at the BCM are family. There immediate family is my family. There immediate family’s family is my family.
And families grieve and rejoice together.
And families grow stronger through prayer.
And prayer is the best thing to grow closer, to grow closer with so we can hold each other up when tough times come.
The power of community is powerful. They’re there for you no matter what.
Use it. Don’t take advantage of it.
