To The People Who Carry Everyone: You Need to be Carried Too.
To the helpers,
To the ones who live to love, support and guide others.
You are so important In this hurting world. Your soul is so beautiful. There is so much of Jesus that shines through you.
But I know it gets heavy sometimes.
I know you feel yourself flattening by everyone else’s emotions.
So much so that you don’t even know how to feel your own.
And I know how scary it is for you to be vulnerable.. how terrifying it can be to break down.
Because if you are weak, who will be strong?
After all, that’s your job. Isn’t it?
If no one has told you this in a while, I hope you’ll believe me:
You were never meant to carry all this alone.
You were never meant be put in the spot of God.
The truth is, you may have never asked to be in this position. Maybe you have just found yourself here. Or maybe it’s always been this way.
I want you to know it’s okay to be weak, too. Just like everyone else.
The world won’t come crashing down when you do, because the world doesn’t rest on you.
It rests on Jesus, and He’s got it.
He is proud of your heart. He loves how you love people.
He also wants to free you from needing to always be strong for everyone else.
He is plenty strong for them and He loves them too.
To the carriers, the world needs you. But you need to be carried sometimes, too.
