Anyone else feeling overwhelmed lately? This time of year - between piles of grading, 5th grade kids (and parent issues), normal fatigue (and added pregnancy fatigue), dishes, deadlines, lesson plans, conferences, etc, I am tempted to despair.
Thankfully, the Lord brought something to mind this morning that has stayed with me all day and given me much comfort.
It is from Scripture, but mingled with a Valley of Vision prayer, which I don't have in front of me.
So, it goes something like this - "I have found that there is nothing so true as this - that apart from Thee, I can do nothing."
This makes me lean, depend, beg, pray, rely, ask, cast cares... and there is a gracious Father who is an ever-present help.
