Ringing Hands

This photo is an accurate depiction of my life right now. 

I’m ringing my hands a lot. I feel alone, and distressed. Everywhere I turn there are major issues and concerns. A heavy weight of burden is laying over my spirit, and I am overwhelmed.

        Finances | Family unrest | Wife’s job | Health | Global catastrophes

It’s difficult to find faith at times like this. It’s hard to see beyond the stress and fix my gaze on the Lord. But I know it’s what I must do. It’s what I am doing.

“Therefore I tell you, do not worry  about your life, what you will eat or drink, or about your body, what you will wear. Isn’t there more to life than food and more to the body than clothing? …” – Matthew 6:25-30

What helps you look beyond the stress to see the Lord?

  1. You know I’m praying for you. This came to mind to share:

    Peace I leave with you; my peace I give to you. Not as the world gives do I give to you. Let not your hearts be troubled, neither let them be afraid. Jn 14:27

  2. Wow, Dennis, that is the very passage I needed to read… at this very moment. Thank you for being available to the Holy Spirit.

    Tearfully… grateful.

  3. Fixing the gaze fixes…. yes, turn your eyes upon Jesus.
    And the whole High Calling Blogs community? We stand with you. You are not alone….
    I am praying for you tonight…
    All’s grace,

  4. Thank you, Ann. That means so much to me.

    What a difference a day makes. The Lord touched my heart last night. I felt the weight and oppression lift off of me. It was both liberating, and faith building. Our God meets us where we are.
