“For you have been a stronghold to the poor, a stronghold to the needy in his distress, a shelter from the storm and a shade from the heat; for the breath of the ruthless is like a storm against a wall,”
Isaiah 25:4 ESV
Life can be overwhelming at times, especially when it seems everyone and everything is placing demands upon us. For me, that describes most Mondays. All day at work on Mondays, I am supposed to be present in at least 2 places at the same time. I am receiving texts and calls and e-mails non-stop as I am tending to the needs of every patient on my schedule. Then after 10 hours of that hectic pace, family demands come rolling along. While I understand the blessings upon me, I feel the stress so intensely that I simply long to be alone and sheltered from the storm.
