We live in a world that is full speed ahead all the time. It is so easy to get caught up in our daily lives doing what we do: going to work, shuttling kids, running errands, and all the other responsibilities that we have. We live in a society that promotes self-reliance and the idea that we should be “Wonder Woman” or “Superman” and not need anyone. On a side bar, if I was to be a “superhero”, I’d prefer to be Hancock…just sayin!
That being said, the constant pressures of life and society make it so easy to forget that we NEED GOD EVERY MINUTE of our lives. We get so caught up trying to juggle everything ourselves and unfortunately, we forget to rely on Him. It’s no wonder we often feel exhausted and at our wits’ end when life keeps piling it on. We need God and inarguably everyone of us needs Jesus every day.
So, if you have been carrying life’s burdens on your own and haven’t been mindful of how much you need God lately, don’t despair. It happens sometimes, and thankfully we serve an awesome, loving God who gives us a fresh slate every day. Lamentations 3:22-23 confirms, “The steadfast love of the Lord never ceases; His mercies never come to an end; they are new every morning; great is Your faithfulness”.
