Shoulders For Free


Shoulders are needed for more than just connecting arms to our bodies.

Roads have shoulders.

Cows give us the Shoulder Roast.

Of course you have a “cold shoulder.”

Who can live without “Head and Shoulders” shampoo?

Shoulder Patches are worn to identify a unit a soldier belongs to.

The most important use of a shoulder is one used for someone else to lean on or for “crying on one’s shoulder.” Having said that it does help for the shoulder to be connected to a body; otherwise it would be quite painful.

Thoughts began running through my energized brain.

Meaningful thoughts such as who do we lean on when there are no shoulders around?

What do we do when life hits us with a swinging bat and no one is there to stop it?

How do we cope when our corner of the world becomes a backboard?

How do people who don’t know Jesus survive?

There comes that time in every person’s life when no human can fulfill us.

There comes that time when there are no options; just a brick wall.

There are times when we are left alone. Completely alone.

When there is nothing left, where do you go?

“I need You Jesus
To come to my rescue
Where else can I go
There’s no other name by
Which I am saved
Capture me with grace
I will follow You.”

Jesus lends his shoulders when the bats are flying and the brick walls stop us.

When no one is around, he is.

When we think it is all over, he has just begun.

When life hits back, he catches us.

When we have nowhere to go, he offers his cross.

It is one thing to not know Jesus exists. It is another to reject him.

Really, honestly, imagining how the lost get through one day is incomprehensible.

Not having him to go to would be a life of total meaninglessness.

If you aren’t going to him on a regular basis, then where else can you go?

Romans 10:9If you declare with your mouth, “Jesus is Lord,” and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. (NIV)”

  1. Good message Cathy, it’s sad though some do not know what it means to confess Jesus is Lord, yes they say the words but don’t understand what they mean, the mouth speakes of what is in the heart. If Jesus has been raised from the dead and He is Lord then we have been set free from what nailed Him to the cross when we are Born again of God;s seed and that is sin, as you can see below

    1 John 3:9 No one who is Born of God will continue to sin, because God’s seed remains in him; he cannot go on sinning, because he has been Born of God.

    1 John 5:18-20 We know that no one who is Born of God sins; but He who was Born of God keeps him, and the evil one does not touch him. We know that we are of God, and that the whole world lies in the power of the evil one. And we know that the Son of God has come, and has given us understanding so that we may know Him who is true; and we are in Him who is true, in His Son Jesus Christ. This is the true God and eternal life.

    Christian Love from us both – Anne.

  2. i am finding this out, that i am never truly alone, it is me that feels this way

  3. This is so true. I often wonder how people can go through the trials of life without having God to put their faith in, to lean on.
    Thanks for the mention! 🙂
