Just recapping the last couple of days. Life is crazy and hectic and we all have so much going on. Tonight we had band practice. We're singing a song called "Healer" which has a crazy background but it's an awesome song. There's a line that says, "You are my portion." We teased a little bit about that word because it sounds like buffet language. I thought about it and I started really liking that word. What it said to me was that Jesus is the right amount at the right time. He knows what we need and He's it. I really like that song. You can check out some of the music from the Fusion site. I've been meaning to upload the youtube of our acoustic set. I really liked that week.

I've been thinking about that verse in the Bible that talks about bearing each other's burdens. That's a lot easier said than done. It's messy. It hurts. It's hard to bear a burden without taking ownership of the least for me it is. I'm trying to bear my friend's burdens. I want to be that kind of friend. I want to listen without having the answers (which is hard for me). I want to be what they need me to be but also be a Truth speaker...that sounds mystical. I just mean I want to be able to be honest and straightforward at the same time as being a compassionate listener. I hate it when my friends hurt. I want to be that friend and at the same time I want to have those kinds of people around me.
