Throw a Bone… We have all had times when life is beating us up, and the only prayer we have the strength to pray is, "God, can you throw me a bone? Can SOMETHING just go right?" I've been there, and at critical times, God has lovingly provided some amazing person to fill our fridge when we needed it, randomly give a gas card, or even take me for a stress relieving pedicure. We need to look out for signs of our fellow brothers and sisters being at the end of themselves and needing for us to "throw them a bone" to fuel them with even a small ray of hope. Let us all be a reminder that there are those who do care and are standing beside them in prayer and tangible support. Whether we are able to fill a need of some kind, or simply a provide small oasis from the stress, let's band together as the family of Christ and Carry each other's burdens, and in this way you will fulfill the law of Christ - Galatians 6:2 -For those in financial stress, give a Visa gift card so they can buy some food, or pay a bill… -Take them a yummy meal…There's nothing more stress relieving for a parent then to have a great meal for the family that required no effort.
