Driving down the dark country road following GPS directions, I wondered . . .
It’s almost 8:30 and too late for supper. Do I stop at a fast food place down the highway? I’m not hungry, but I do need to eat something. Earlier I considered fasting this meal? Hmmm . . . It might help me lose some weight. Lord, what do I do?
My child, they get tired. They see life as a struggle or a fight with success unreachable. They expect defeat instead of looking for victory. They try with all their strength to meet a goal only to fall down again. After perceiving continued failures they quit trying. Life seems too hard and just not worth it. They lose hope.
