Quite often I can't sleep. I'm burdened and I can't stop praying, in that time, quite often I fall asleep praying. I've said it before, if I've committed to praying for you or someone in your family, I'm praying, all the time.
Last night I was burdened by J, L, H, K, P, and a jerk. How's that, I was burdened by a jerk? That person masqueardes as a Christian man, but it seems like some days his heart and his actions say otherwise (just like me sometimes!) so I had to pray for him too. I could see their faces each one. My heart just hurt. I couldn't sleep. I got a text because the person wished I wasn't so burdened. But here's the crazy thing, I'd never sleep again if it meant that I was loving.
I do often sometimes go a little overboard because I love. Some people, like Sara, might say I'm a nag because when she needed to go to the doctor, I bugged her until she did. Not to be a jerk, but because I love her and I intended on her being here a long time for me, and for her family.
I probably take on the burden of hurt a little too much because I know what it's like to hurt. I've left Fuel and Alive and cried myself to sleep because "my kids" hurt. I've also left angry because there is no reason for it.
As much as it hurts, I wouldn't change a thing. Loving is the way I want to live!
