“I waited patiently for the LORD;
he turned to me and heard my cry.
He lifted me out of the slimy pit,
out of the mud and mire;
he set my feet on a rock
and gave me a firm place to stand.
He put a new song in my mouth,
a hymn of praise to our God.”
I was on my knees last night praying for relief. My husband joined me there. My littlest blessing, Stephen, has been in the habit of not sleeping lately due to teething, and I was wore out. I was losing it without sleep. Withouy sleep, my mind began to slip into darkness. I knew I wasn’t feeling myself. I cried to God, literally cried, “I cannot do this anymore!” Even though He alone knows what I am truly capable of, his response was rescue. Stephen only woke up one time last night and is presently waking up from his second FULL nap today =)
I completely understand people are out there battling much bigger giants right now than a teething baby. I encourage them to cry out too. He is there with a listening ear turned towards you.
