A Sunday Thought

It is Sunday afternoon and I have had my nap. I feel refreshed and wanted share with you.

I was thinking about some events that have happened and are going to happen, and how they have effected me. Actually, I should say how I have let them effect me. Oh; yes, I am human and sometimes I let things pile up and cause me distress before I finally deal with it. I will admit that I also am a person who has had this thought in my head that if I talk about my problems with someone else then I am less dependent on God. Does that sound crazy, the truth is if I think that then I am pretty sure there are others out there who think the same thing. I ran across a blog, not sure which one, but this women asked how the body of Christ should work for us. After I read that my wheels started spinning and God started speaking to me and informed me that the Body of Christ is for my use also. It is the support system he gave us here on earth. We can go to another Christian and share and our problems and ask for guidance and prayer in regards to these things.

Now lets backtrack just a little, what I am not saying is, do not pray on your own or depend on God for his strength. Remember, his strength is made perfect in weakness. When we are weak he is strong. Along with all of this we can go to a brother or sister in Christ and God can help us by their wisdom, compassion and prayer. I am reminded of a verse: James 5:6 Confess your faults one to another, and pray one for another, that ye may be healed. The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much. God has instructed us to go to others in our weakness, especially when we, in our human failure, cannot see a way out.

I am so glad for my christian friends who care about me and what is going on in my life. I am so glad that God has placed them there, but not only do I need their support but I want to help them also. I pray that God will grant me the wisdom to help others.
