There are hurting people everywhere, but at times we just don’t know what to say or do to ease their pain. Here are six practical ways to bear someone else’s burden.

Be there. At times the best “method” of helping is simply to be present. During our darkest hours, we don’t need someone who tries in vain to fix everything; we just need a friend.

Listen. Don’t attempt to give answers or tell people what to do next. Injured souls frequently want simply a listening ear so they can express what’s on their mind.

Share. Never parade yourself as someone who has all the answers. Instead, allow your own pain and failures to help others.

Pray. There is power in speaking people’s names before the Lord. When they hear someone talk to Jesus on their behalf, healing often starts taking place.

Give. Sometimes helping others involves more than a handshake or warm hug. Maybe they need something financial or material. One of the best measures of sincerity is how much we’re willing to give to others.
Substitute.You may know an individual who bears the burden of caring for someone else. If you step in and take his or her place for a while, you are emulating your Savior—He, too, was a substitute.
Because we were unable to do it ourselves, Jesus bore all of our sin and sorrow, even unto death. As a result, we can live happily and eternally in communion with our Father. If Christ did that for us, how can we ever say, “I’m too busy to bear someone else’s burden”?

If God could run out of grace, He would’ve for me by now. And yet every morning I wake up, He says, “There is more, there is still more.”

Here’s 10 Pieces Of Advice Every Woman Needs To Hear:

Your worth is not defined by what others think of you. — Psalm 139:14
You may be trash according to them, but you are priceless to Him. You need to develop tunnel vision to your purpose. Once you develop that, No one can stand in the way of your vision. It’s too important.

Just because everyone is doing it, doesn’t mean it’s right. — Exodus 23:2
Never feel the need to “fit in”. As Christians, we have an obligation to stand out from the rest of the world. When you don’t know what to do it might seem like a good idea to do the same thing everyone else is doing. After all, if everyone else is doing it, It can’t be that bad, right? WRONG!

Tough times are only temporary. –Romans 8:28
Every time it rains, it stops raining. Every time you get hurt, you heal. After darkness there is always light. No matter how difficult the situation is, keep pushing forward in Faith and remind yourself that troubles don’t last always and tough times are only temporary.

Attitude is everything. –Proverbs 23:7 
I can’t stress this enough. Your attitude determines the outcome of every situation in our life. You can let something break you or you can let it make you stronger. The choice is yours. “A bad attitude is like a flat tire. If you don’t change it, you’ll never go anywhere.”

Mean Girls aren’t cool. –Ephesians 4:32
A pretty face is nothing if you have an ugly heart. There’s nothing cute about putting others down. Treat others the way you want to be treated.

Respect starts with Self-Respect. –Psalm 106:3
It all starts with you. Respect yourself and others will have to respect you as well. In relationships, people can only treat you the way you allow them to treat you. No, you can’t control the way others act, but you don’t have to tolerate it neither.

The little things are what matters the most. — Hebrews 13:5 
Sometimes we pray for material things… and that’s fine, but don’t forget the things which money can’t buy. ( your health, your family, your friends ) Happiness isn’t about getting what you want all the time. It’s about loving what you have and realizing how blessed you are to have it!

When one door closes, another one opens. –Deuteronomy 30:3
…And most of the time, an even better one. God sometimes closes doors because it’s time for us to move forward. And that’s a good thing because we often won’t move unless circumstances force us to. Just know that God will restore everything you lost.

Faith makes things possible, not easy. — James 2:17
…And Faith without works is dead. You’ve got to work hard and pray harder. Remember… anything worth having is worth working for. They’ll be days when you’ll want to give up, Don’t!

Without God you are nothing. –John 15:5
No matter how big you get, never forget where He has brought you from. Be humble. Realize that you are blessed to have the things you have. They are gifts from God. They are not owed to you. Oh and FYI…Humble pie doesn’t taste good at all.

In loving memory of Riley Matthew Moscatel, a transgender 17-year-old from Philadelphia who died by suicide this week. His parents say he had been suffering from depression for five years and struggled with deciding whether to go to college, failed relationships, and difficulty around his gender identity. 
This is a chilling reminder that trans people have exponentially higher rates of depression and suicide than cis people; we must all do better to make sure everyone has access to mental health resources and affirming support, no matter who they are, where they’re from or how they identify. 
If you or someone you know needs help, please call the Trevor Project Lifeline (ages 24 or younger) at 1-866-488-7386 or the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline at 1-800-273-8255. You are never alone. I promise.
