The Longest Piggy Back Ride Ever
I’m pretty sure my wife is absolutely exhausted from taking care of me all the time and driving me to most destinations. I’m exhausted just from going place to place. We’re in a desert season where every step feels like a long country mile. Presently there are no decisions that feel easy. There are no mountains that don’t appear like the tallest ever.
For quite awhile I was carried by sheer adrenaline and drive to move forward. I’ve always been one to believe that I could make it through anything. That was until I exceeded my tolerance capacity. Certain levels of adversity just introduce you to your maximum limits more than others. If that’s the case I’ve been introduced to way more than I can handle long ago.
Daily for the longest time I’ve felt like I’m operating off of fumes. My own tank of gas has been reached empty. The only way I’ve made it has been pure grace and strength from above. There is no other explanation for me making it this far. My body feels like it has fallen apart in every way possible. Yet, God keeps carrying me forward on His shoulders. This is by far the longest piggy back ride I’ve ever been on.
“You, LORD, keep my lamp burning; my God turns my darkness into light.” (Psalm 18:28)
“But he said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore I will boast all the more gladly about my weaknesses, so that Christ’s power may rest on me.” (2 Corinthians 12:9)
