I guess everyone feels this way from time-to-time. For some this feeling has to do with family. For others it has to do with their job. Far too many feel this way about their marriage. Many pastors will quip that they feel this way every Monday morning. For me, the feeling is most prominent after Business Meetings; but honestly, I feel this way after a lot of Sundays as well!
What is this feeling? It is the feeling that you would like to QUIT! Quit the job. Leave the marriage. Check out on the family. Walk away from the ministry. Forget your friends. Why stay? Nobody cares anyway, except for the people who have a gripe. They are the ones you will hear from!
Then you read Psalm 37:23-24 – “A person’s steps are established by the Lord, and He takes pleasure in his way. Though he falls, he will not be overwhelmed, because the Lord supports him with His hand.” Somehow Lord, I have to trust that You have established my steps. Somehow or another You take pleasure in my way. Every time I fall, even if the words of others threaten to overwhelm me You won’t allow it because You are the One who is holding my hand. So right now, even though my feelings are telling me to QUIT, my faith is telling me to CLING to Your hand.
Dear ones, may God give you the strength to cling to Him in your trials!
