Lean On Me

Lean On Me

What do you do when there are so many people around you who are hurting?  People who have hurt each other. People who hurt themselves. People who have lost and feel as if they have nothing more to gain.

I’m so tired of everyone around me hurting.  The only thing that I know to do is listen and pray.

A lot of the hurting is senseless.  If we would only put God first and listen to His true Word, we wouldn’t cause as much pain.

Most of us these days, have a “me” mentality.  You only care about your own feelings and not about how your actions affect anyone around you. Everything you do or say, has a consequence. It can affect someone in a good way or a bad way.  If you say something, it goes on forever. So make sure that the words that you speak are not damaging, but uplifting. Speak blessings and not cursings.  This can make a huge difference in whether or not you cause someone pain or joy.

Be a blessing to someone.  If they need to be heard, listen with your heart and don’t blab what they confide in you.  Sometimes, all someone needs is a shoulder to lean on.  A true friend.

May the word of our mouth and the meditations of our hearts be acceptable in God’s sight.
