In you, Oh Lord, I seek refuge; do not let me ever be put to shame; in your righteousness deliver me. Incline your ear to me; rescue me speedily, a strong fortress to save me. You are indeed my rock and my fortress; for your name’s sake lead and guide me. Psalm 13:1-2
Four times in my life I thought that I could not possibly shoulder the weight that LIFE had placed in my shoulders; each time, metaphorically throwing up my hands in despair, I told God that it was too much for me, and pretty much demanded God’s help. God’s shoulders are broad, God’s strength is great, God’s caring is profound. Four times God lifted me to a place where I was strong enough to figure out a path forward; through a dream, through a book sent unexpectedly by friends, and by a stubborn friend fighting for me. Ask and it will be given to you, even if the “IT” isn’t quite what you thought it would be. Ask anyway. Ask always.
