We have found that many people are running on empty. So many are dealing with stress as a result of unprecedented pressure in facing daily life. What does one say?
For followers of Christ the truth contained in the hymn "The Church's One Foundation" takes on a deep reassurance when we personalize it.
"The church's one foundation
Is Jesus Christ her Lord;
She is his new creation
By water and the Word.
From heaven he came and sought her
To be his holy bride;
With his own blood he bought her,
And for her life he died."
When we take to heart these words, we can see how significant we are to our Father. He loves us to the extent that He sent His only son to seek and save us.
He wants us to cast a our cares on Him. That may well mean that we put aside our own man-made plans and trust Him implicitly. Not only has he promised to be with us in our darkest hour, He will prepare a table for us in the face of our adversaries. (Psalm 23:4-5)
If you are amongst those who feel overwhelmed by your circumstances, refocus on your heavenly Father who has you in the palm of His hand.
