Circle of Responsibility

Laying in my bed at night, I felt as though the pressure would crush me. Everyone is stuck inside. So many people need contact. So many people struggle with loneliness. So many young moms are feeling the stress of distance education. So many are working in the danger zones of hospitals or nursing homes. Then there were the counseling sessions we were in the middle of, some making progress and others needing more intense care. What would happen to those? 

I slipped downstairs and desperately put the kettle on to make a cup of chamomile tea, hoping to calm my racing heart. Waiting in the silence of the night, I leaned against the counter in prayer. It was all too much. How could I possibly touch all of those things without letting go of my own family’s needs or the balance in ministry I knew was so very important? Yet, as I poured my heart out to the One who knows and sees it all, the Holy Spirit spoke truth to my heart.
