“Do not fear, little flock, for it is your Father's good pleasure to give you the kingdom.”
— Luke 12:32
Have you had times that you just wanted to quit life? You would love to stay in bed with the covers over your head? I have. Many times.
Many times I have wanted to just pull the covers over my head and hide. In fact, there have been times when I actually have done that. When my children were young and I was working full time it seemed so hard. I felt that I had so many responsibilities. I would come home and for just a few minutes I would lie down and put a pillow over my head until I could think again.
I am semi-retired now and I still want to do that sometimes. The temptation is great. Being retired is not always peaceful and slow- paced. It can be hectic and stressful. It is harder to deal with things now that I am over sixty.
But I know that God has my back. Even though I get frustrated and confused at times. I still know that God is for me. I am part of his flock. He cares for me. This knowledge keeps me going. And going.
Ever have those kind of days? Leave me a comment and let me know how you handle them.
