There will be times though that life is just too much for us. It is during these events that everything seems to be crashing down around us and we find ourselves in a pit of despair with no apparent escape.
"Lord, I am weak and you are strong, please be my strength and wisdom, show me the way? Teach me how to listen to your voice?"
John 10:2-5 (NIV) "The man who enters by the gate is the shepherd of his sheep. The watchman opens the gate for him, and the sheep listen to his voice. He calls his own sheep by name and leads them out. When he has brought out all his own, he goes on ahead of them, and his sheep follow him because they know his voice. But they will never follow a stranger; in fact, they will run away from him because they do not recognize a stranger's voice."
