Help Me Lord!

You ever have one of those days/weeks where things just don't seem to be coming together? One of those, "when it rains it pours" type things?

Yeah I am having one of those. It would almost seem like a perfect storm of "ugghhh" is brewing. Mostly this involves work stuff. Just a lot of stuff coming all at once...

Then there is the lack of sleep with the baby and to top it off I am aching right now because I apparently attempt to hit baseballs with my body instead of a bat...

Psalm 121:1-2, "I will lift up my eyes to the hills—From whence comes my help? My help comes from the LORD, Who made heaven and earth."

So this is the verse i am meditating on as I seek God's wisdom. Lots of the stuff coming up is truly minor...my employee review, a bi-annual internal work audit, meetings, bigger meetings, etc. It just all seems to be coming at once.

I realized tonight I wasn't looking to where my help comes from. I was not looking to the Maker of Heaven. I've been trying to figure it out in my own mind instead of letting God speak into the situation...

Enough of that. I recognize how weak I am and how much of His help I need.

Now if I can just figure out how to catch a ball with my glove and not my belly or knee.

I find I tend to forget about God in the everyday things. I am in the process of renewing my mind in this area, and trying to invite Him into every corner of my being. After all, I was created for fellowship with Him so doesn't that mean I should talk with Him about everything. Sometimes I think we forget that God is for us, not against us. He's not angry with us, he desires fellowship with us. So today I pray that we will all be mindful of His greatness and His ability and willingness to help in every aspect of our lives.

God is our refuge and our strength - easy to get sidetracked when life is coming at ya full-throttle!

@Tonya - Amen. It is easy to forget with the cares of this world, that we are only passing through.

@herbhalstead - Amen!
