Hi. How’s your day today? If your night was anything like mine you went to bed far too late and were awakened far too early.
Becoming a parent
Entering my forties
Being diagnosed with sleep apnea
I have more nights/days like that. Rest is a fleeting commodity. Add to that work pressures, comitments, obligations, family issues, and sometimes I want to pull the escape hatch.
I’m sure you’ve felt the same, right?
Sometimes life is too much.
But I’m a guy. I’m supposed to be tough, stong…
I’m suposed to be able to handle it. Thing is, I don’t always. I don’t handle it at all well. Sometimes, my coping strategies involve just about exactly the wrong thing.
I have struggles I don’t want to have.
My prayer of late, after trying to lay ahold of kingdom promises, has simply been:
“I’m not strong, I don’t have it altogether. God, be merciful to me, a sinner.”
How about you?
If you’re a guy, and you’re going through something you’d rather not be, I want you to know:
YOU’RE NOT ALONE.
I’m here for you. This blog is a safe place. It exists for our mutual comfort and encouragement.
I’m here for you.
Can I count on you when life is hard?
