Do you ever find yourself in that position? Taking care of everyone but yourself? Sure you do, especially if you are a parent, a spouse, a child, an aunt or uncle, grandparent...does that cover all of us? Yes, yes it does.
Life can sometimes be overwhelming. It doesn't matter who you are, what you do, where you live, how you live...Life can seem like that huge wave that sweeps over you, knocking you over, tossing you against the sand, upending you.
But there is always hope. A lighthouse that shines brightly on the coast of life. It leads us to the safe harbor where calm waters await.
I don't often read The Message version of the Bible, but I like this. Let it wash over you today.
1-3 God, my shepherd! I don't need a thing.
You have bedded me down in lush meadows,
you find me quiet pools to drink from.
True to your word,
you let me catch my breath
and send me in the right direction.
4 Even when the way goes through
I'm not afraid
when you walk at my side.
Your trusty shepherd's crook
makes me feel secure.
5 You serve me a six-course dinner
right in front of my enemies.
You revive my drooping head;
my cup brims with blessing.
6 Your beauty and love chase after me
every day of my life.
I'm back home in the house of God
for the rest of my life.
