God Our Burden Bearer

When my brother was ill with cancer two years ago, each day was a day of struggle for me. Seeing him slowly succumb to an illness that took his strength away hour after hour, made me suffer inwardly too. The saddest thing about it was, I could not do anything to help him or ease the pain he was going though.
It was harder seeing a loved one in such pain, it tormented me and tortured me inside.

In my human frustration and anguish, I prayed to God that He will spare my brother the pain from his illness. I had accepted the fact that he will soon die as the cancer was terminal and had advanced. I only asked God that he will not suffer.

God shows us His power in all the impossible things we experience in life. Alhtough my brother's health ebbed away, his strength and his energy sapped by the cruel debilitating cells of cancer, I never heard him squirm or cry out in pain during his last few months. On March 15, 2009, he died slowly but peacefully and there was no suffering. He also accepted our Lord Jesus Christ as his Lord and Savior before he died. God had answered my prayer.

During all those months, I turned to God for strength and gave Him my own pain. As a human being, I knew my limits and I knew I could not endure seeing my brother suffer that way. God is Faithful, and He held us both through that devastating time. He is our Burden Bearer, and His Power alone can make us go through the ravaging trials of life - illness, loss, poverty, war, and even death, and still become victorious.


Psalm 68:19-20 says "Praise be to the Lord, to God our Savior,
Who daily bears our burdens."

"For our God is a God Who saves; from the Sovereign Lord comes escape from death."
