“I can do ALL THINGS through CHRIST which strengtheneth me” (Philippians 4:13). This is my every day mantra!
I cannot tell you the number of times I have felt overwhelmed by the tasks in front of me..whether it was staying patiently awake with my son Nathan who was up for the day at 2:00am, moving my schedule-dependent children across the nation for a new job, or recovering from a life-threatening accident. I have felt discouraged, depressed, and exhausted beyond my ability to think clearly. At these moments of greatest need I have found great power and strength in prayer. And I have found that perhaps I have the strength to go on after all…only this strength wasn’t coming from me. It came from my Savior.
For those of you who have felt similar exhaustion, may I encourage you to try prayer. I promise that God answers those desperate prayers. There is power that comes through Christ’s mercy and love–Power to face what may seem like an insurmountable mountain. Have faith, courage and carry on dear friends!
