Some days I feel like have nothing to give. I am running on empty. I got nothing left. I usually feel this way when I am trying to live life in my own strength. If I keep running full steam ahead, checking things off my to do list, and trying to juggle it all, by the end of the day I am wiped out. I have totally been the mom asleep on the couch at 8 o’clock at night while my kids are still running around playing, and I wake up wondering how I am going to make it through the bedtime routine. In those moments I also marvel that they still have so much energy at that time of day. I was reminded by a friend this week that the old saying, “God does not give us more than we can handle.” is a lie. God wants us to cry out to him, when we have nothing left to give. Actually, I am sure that He wants to call out to us before we get to that point, but I admit I am stubborn sometimes. I get to that point of total depletion, before crying out to him. I am so thankful that in those times that I am in my greatest need that I can find comfort, rest, and peace in Christ.
