It hurts to know you're hurting;
because you’re so special in my heart
The pain that you are feeling;
is tearing me apart.
But know that love has a way;
of easing all that’s wrong
Together we can make it;
if we hold on and just be strong.
Know that you’re not alone;
in all your adversity.
For by your side through and through;
is where I'll always be.
The above poem illustrates the attitude we in the church should have for one-another.
We are to weep with those who weep and feel the pain of our brethren. Romans 12:15 Rejoice with those who rejoice, and weep with those who weep.
We are to love one-another and that love eases the problems of life. 1 Peter 3:8 Finally, all of you be of one mind, having compassion for one another; love as brothers, be tenderhearted, be courteous;
There is strength in numbers and knowing that our brethren are with us in our troubles gives us strength and encouragement.
Many hands not only make for light work but also for light hearts that are burdened with care. Ecclesiastes 4:9-12 Two are better than one, Because they have a good reward for their labor. 10 For if they fall, one will lift up his companion. But woe to him who is alone when he falls, For he has no one to help him up. 11 Again, if two lie down together, they will keep warm; But how can one be warm alone? 12 Though one may be overpowered by another, two can withstand him. And a threefold cord is not quickly broken.
May we all strive this year to be there for each other when help and comfort is needed. - LP
