John 15:13- Greater love hath no one than this, that he lay down his life for his friends

I feel really burdened for a friend today. She had a medical emergency and is now in the hospital. My heart is literally aching for her and her family. She is going to be fine though (Praise God!). I started thinking about when Christ talks about "bearing one another's burdens". I then realized that His heart aches for us and our burdens as well. Oh, how much He loves us! I can intercede for her while Christ is interceding for her. Somehow in the midst of trials and troubles, it gives me such comfort to know that He is right here with us....bearing our burdens! We serve a great God!
