I have a lot on my plate--three little ones, a part time job, a parent with cancer...and right now we are searching for a home. Oh, and potty training, which might be the death of me. David's waking frequently at night and I'm exhausted! Tired! Overwhelmed! Enough already with the whining, Sarah!
You've got a lot on your plate, too, I've no doubt. So maybe you'll find this as profoundly impact as I did:
"Presbyterian pastor A. B. Simpson, approaching middle age, broken in health, deeply despondent and ready to quit the ministry, chanced to hear the simple spiritual,
Nothing is too hard for Jesus,
No man can work like Him.
"Its message sped like an arrow to his heart, carrying faith and hope and life for body and soul. He sought a place of retirement and after a season alone with God arose to his feet completely cured, and went forth in fullness of joy to found what has since become one of the largest foreign missionary societies in the world. For thirty-five years after this encounter with God, he labored prodigiously in the service of Christ. His faith in God limitless power gave him all the strength he needed to carry on."
-A.W. Tozer, from The Knowledge of the Holy
