I don’t know about you but I can get overwhelmed by all that is going on in the world, or even my own little world, and in the process lose heart, give up or not even try. There can be a “what’s the point” attitude, a “so it has been so it always will be” mindset. I wonder what would be the result, or where would we be if we got stuck in that particular attitude or place? Barack Obama recently wrote “As we confront division, discrimination, inequality in our time – challenges too big for one person and too complex for one simple solution – its easy to get discouraged. I find its best then, as it is, to often remind ourselves of the words of Nelson Mandela, a political prisoner who rose to lead a nation and inspire the world who said ’It always seems impossible until it is done’.” I am reminded of the words of another great leader who wrote “Now to him who by the power at work within us is able to accomplish abundantly far more than all we can ask or imagine.” (Ephesians 3:20) Or “I can do all things through him who strengthens me.” (Philippians 4:13) Or the greatest leader of all time said “Come to me all you who are weary and carrying heavy burdens, and I will give you rest. Walk with me and work with me – watch how I do it. Learn the unforced rhythms of grace. I won’t lay anything heavy or ill fitting on you. Keep company with me and you’ll learn to live freely and lightly.” (Matthew 11:28-30 NRSV & The Message)
The thing to remind ourselves of is that we are not alone, we are not orphans, God is with us!
