You might be wondering why I might be upset about this. Well, like I said, "classic type A." He comes home stressed out, feeling overwhelmed, and pretty much depressed. I have to do something, anything, to help him. I love him. Please understand, when he hurts, I hurt. That's just how it is. I want to fix him. Now, of course, you and I both know that I cannot rescue him--right?
No, I cannot restore his peace myself, but I know someone who can--Jesus. So I start to pray for him and remind him of who is really in authority, the one who sees all and knows all--God.
After all, we are only human--weak, fragile, fallible creatures. We can only do so much on our own abilities but, with God, "we can do all things through Christ who strengthens us." (Philippians 4:13) I know it sounds trite, but, when we get to the end of our own human might, we need to let go and let God.
Like a Police Officer, God's purpose consists of saving lives, protecting lives, and ridding the world of evil. Unlike the lawman, God never gets weary. He is all knowing, all seeing, and all POWERFUL!
As I pray with my soul mate, I can literally feel the stress flowing from his body as the peace of God embraces him. My heart slows, my stomach calms...what a relief to know, when we become overly burdened and completely undone by our own expectations of ourselves, we can cast our cares upon the Lord, receive his peace, and know that he is awake, alert, and on the job--24/7!
To Him be the glory! Amen.
