Weighed Down Hard

Sometimes I wonder about the heart of God.
With just the tiny army He's entrusted to me, my heart  can become so heavy I can hardly lift my eyes.  Listening to the stories, talking to the hurts, encouraging and being patient and not being patient.  Trying to give the kids a chance to throw off the past and seeing so many fail over and over again.
Today was one of those days when I wanted to quit.  All my efforts seemed useless and my heart was weighed down like a rock.
But it's God's story and He's painted each stone with His love.

Hi Kate,

The sentiment of your blog was written on your face yesterday. I'm sorry I wasn't able pray you. His grace will sustain you even when you are empty. Your (and James') labors are NOT in vain. Keep holding on and know that you are loved. Truly.

Kate - the good that that you and James have done in this world will impact many generations of people to come.

I will pray for God to heal your spirit.

1 Corinthians 15:58 (New International Version, ©2010)

Therefore, my dear brothers and sisters, stand firm. Let nothing move you. Always give yourselves fully to the work of the Lord, because you know that your labor in the Lord is not in vain.

I so understand and when I saw your post I wanted to cry....same as we work with moms at our crisis pregnancy center....stories make my heart so heavy for them, but I am so thankful that all is in God's plan and HE makes no mistakes! I am so thankful that our center can be a place for these moms, as your place is a haven for these kids!!
