What She Might Be Going Through

She may be dressed very well, but inside she's battling with trusting God to handle her home and financial difficulties.

She may be outgoing and bubbly, but inside she is fighting fear and doubt.

She may be active in her church and community, but inside she's struggling to find God's purpose and plan for her life.

You can't look at another woman's outside appearance and know everything that's going on in her heart.

Many of our spiritual battles take place in our deep, quiet recesses. No one will see the battle and struggle going on when we're out of the public eye. Even our close friends may never know the prayers and the tears and the cries to God for grace and mercy.

Let all bitterness, and wrath, and anger, and glamour, and evil speaking, be put away from you, with all malice: And be ye kind one to another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, even as God for Christ's sake hath forgiven you. Ephesians 4:31-32

It's so easy to judge the cover of the book without ever opening it. We're well acquainted with our own struggles, but we rarely think about others going through similar trials and tests. It's easier to keep our eyes turned inward than lift them up to see what others are doing.

Looking at a woman who carries herself well, is dressed nicely and seems to enjoy fellowship in God's house, we would assume she's victorious in every part of her life. She sure looks like she's got it all together and is walking closely with the Lord.

But do we stop to ask her how she's doing - really?

Bear ye one another's burdens, and so fulfil the law of Christ. Galatians 6:2

God's Word calls us to support one another in His love, to carry the load of someone else's burden when it's to heavy for them to handle alone. Even if there's nothing we can physically do to help, we can always be a listening ear, a should to cry on and a prayer warrior in difficult times.

We're intimately aware of the needs in our own life. Let's spend this week getting out of our own heads and getting into the lives of those who desperately need us.

Find out what she's going through and pray her through it instead of assuming everything's just fine.
