Digging the Wrong Kind of Hole

Have you ever felt like digging a hole, crawling in and never coming out? That is where I'm at right now. Stressful situations, too many things to do, too little time, things that never seem to go smoothly, too little sleep, all contribute to the need to grab a shovel. Right now all I want to do is crawl in that hole, cover my head and never have to deal with another thing.

I am so grateful for a Heavenly Father who is nothing like me. He never gives up. He loves us no matter what we do or how we act. He gives us assurance over and over again in His Word.

The Lord himself goes before you and will be with you; he will never leave you nor forsake you. Do not be afraid: do not be discouraged.    Deuteronomy 31:8

The hole is deep. I think I  need to stop digging and keep looking up.
