You have responsibilities, but you don’t seem to have enough time or energy. You can’t escape your reality either. Still, it’s a good idea to discern where you might be wasting time. You can’t solve everyone’s problems.
No doubt, there are things you can’t avoid. You have to face them. And when it seems to be too much, it’s even more important to spend time in God’s presence. You might feel you don’t have the time, but in the end it saves you time. God gives you a clear mind. This makes you more efficient. You worry less and have more energy. Resist the temptation to try to do it on your own.
Yes, you suffer. Of course it’s hard. But if you let God’s Spirit work in you, then your character in Christ becomes stronger. Go to him. Rest in the Lord. Then face your challenges with confidence in God.
Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword? As it is written,
“For thy sake we are being killed all the day long;
we are regarded as sheep to be slaughtered.”
No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us. For I am sure that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor things present, nor things to come, nor powers, nor height, nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God in Christ Jesus our Lord.
But Jesus looked at them and said to them, “With men this is impossible, but with God all things are possible.
But you are not in the flesh, you are in the Spirit, if in fact the Spirit of God dwells in you. Any one who does not have the Spirit of Christ does not belong to him.
