Loving you through it

I was listening to the radio today and something struck me. I was listening to "I'm Gonna Love You Through It" by Martina McBride and I got to thinking about what we're meant to be.
He said, "I know that you’re afraid and I am, too
But you’ll never be alone, I promise you"

When you’re weak, I’ll be strong
When you let go, I’ll hold on
When you need to cry, I swear that I’ll be there to dry your eyes
When you feel lost and scared to death,
Like you can’t take one more step
Just take my hand, together we can do it
I’m gonna love you through it.
Isn't this what we should all do for each other. As Christians we are meant to be Christ-like. Isn't this His promise to us? He loves us through it. We should love each other through the difficult times in life rather than kicking each other when we are down.

So many times I see people struggling and I hear people complaining about how they are handling it. If they can improve something, shouldn't we help them? Now, I know that not all people are going to be open to change or suggestions, but isn't that when we should just be there for them? Sometimes I just need someone to dry my eyes or hold my hand and love me through it. I am lucky to have found people to do this for me, but not everyone does. Some people gloat others just laugh. Where have we gone so wrong that we cannot help each other through the hard times rather than compounding it?

God doesn't promise that everyday will be sunshine and roses, but He does promise to always be there for us. Is it so hard for us to do this for each other? You don't have to be a Christian to be a good person, nor does being a Christian make you a good person, rather loving each other through it makes you a good person. There is nothing to gain by loving someone other than love. There are no material gains, but what your heart gains is priceless. I am not perfect, and don't always follow this advice myself, but New Year's Resolutions aside, I am going to try to love others and not kick them when they are down.

God Bless,
