For a long time I thought I was strong until I experienced deep emotional pain that I knew was impossible for me to handle. Just by myself. Strong. Didn’t need anyone else to carry my burdens. I may have known in my head that I NEEDED Jesus to bear my burden of sin and shame on the cross, to bear my condemnation, in order to be SET free from sin, but in my actions, in my life I denied it. And these days, I still experience that. For a long time I’ve tried to cover my deepest pains, my deepest insecurities.
I don’t really want to write this post, but I want to, because I want others to know that if you are struggling with this, you are NOT alone too.
That’s what the body of Christ Jesus is for; we’re there to bear one another’s burdens, to weep when others weep, to rejoice when others in the body of Christ rejoice.
