Have you ever felt like you are trying to run with cement shoes on? Sometimes you just can’t seem to get ahead of things that are piling up — reports, work, things to do at home, and class assignments. The more you work, the farther behind you feel. It’s sort of like running with cement shoes on!! Everything you do feels sluggish and so hard to do. We’ve all been there…and maybe you feel that now. Stay committed, be encouraged. You’re not alone. The best antidote for cement shoes is taking a moment to do a little priority inventory. What’s weighing on you? What’s important? And who’s with me that I can rely on? Let me remind you the last question is the most important. Jesus Christ wants to be part of your burden; to help you carry it; to lift you. Although it helps to know that, it mostly helps when you take time to partner with you. Remember that God loves you. Exhale and rest in that knowledge.
Every Monday and Wednesday from 3pm-5pm a Chaplain is in the Event Center Green Room if you would like to drop in to pray or simply share your burden.
Feel free to let me know if you have a specific prayer request. We’ll pray for you.
