Are you going through a tough time? Maybe money is tight or your marriage is hanging by a thread or you have lost your job and you are hurting. You feel like the Psalmist who said, “I am exhausted and completely crushed.”
Think about those words….”I am exhausted and completely crushed..”.
Crushed…You ever felt like that? I mean, you can be hurting so bad you feel like you have been run over by a truck.
What do you do when you feel that way? You pray and ask the Lord for strength and He will grant it. You read God’s word and the Scripture speak to your heart. You may not run a race that day but God will pick us up.
If you feel exhausted and crushed, you’re not alone. The apostle Paul felt the same. In II Corinthians 11:27 Paul wrote; I have been in labor and hardship, through many sleepless nights, in hunger and thirst, often without food, in cold and exposure.”
So, if you are hurting…if you feel crushed, the Lord wants to help you. Gather yourself and slowly get up. Put one foot in front of the other and begin to move forward.
