Not that I am speaking of being in need, for I have learned in whatever situation I am to be content. I know how to be brought low, and I know how to abound. In any and every circumstance, I have learned the secret of facing plenty and hunger, abundance and need. I can do all things through him who strengthens me. Philippians 4:11-13, ESV
A teacher whose administrator added one more task to an already overflowing to-do list. An administrator who is facing a lot of pressure from the school division or parents. Or a student teacher wondering how they will ever handle a classroom on their own.
Can you relate?
We live in a broken, sinful world. And the reality is that most things are out of our control. So, when things inevitably feel like more than we can handle, who do we turn to for help?
Today, I encourage you to focus on God as your strength. Don’t be afraid to ask Him for help!
Dear Lord, It’s easy to get caught up in my to-do list and forget that You are here to help me in everything. Thank you for caring about us and providing guidance and rest during trying seasons. We love you, Lord. Amen.
