Life’s Challenges

Life’s challenges will either make you or break you. I’m teetering today.

Trying to excel in all aspects of life is probably just a little too much to ask of oneself. But where do you draw the line? How do you not try?

When trials bombard you in a variety of ways and from every.single.direction possible…what do you do?

And when others tell that God doesn’t give you more than you can handle…um…could you back that with scripture, please? Because I don’t know that I believe it.

When I have to be dependent on others to make it through my stuff, I’m not so sure I’m handling it.

My sleepless mind is weary, yet it won’t rest. My body is fatigued. My heart aches. A ship without sails on a motionless sea.

I move on through each day with no sense of time. I can’t fix everyone else’s problems, although I wish I could. I have many of my own to contend with.

Life’s challenges. Can you relate? I don’t think I am alone in this although I feel it at times. Trying to pull strength from God. Am I not listening, or what?

Gratefully, I am able to see blessings in every moment. And I am truly blessed beyond measure. But the trials are just so much.

The only scripture that’s comes to mind this morning is this beautiful one. My focus for the day.

Psalm 46:10
Be still, and know that I am God.

I know tomorrow will be a better day. ♥️
