I was stuck! My schedule was busy and I needed to plan some things coming up but I couldn’t see the wood for the trees. I prayed, I gave it to God (well tried to) and let it go. I heard a strange word, ‘Maverick’ which means out there or different or rebel – for good or bad. ‘Okay God.’ ‘Perhaps I’ve got to think outside the box– this is going to look different to how I normally do things – righto, I’m open.’ Soon a lightbulb moment came as I had my answer about being ‘able’. I realised that I am able to do all things because God is so very able.

‘Now to Him who is able to do exceedingly, abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that works in us…’ Ephesians 3:20 NKJV

When do you get overwhelmed: is it when you are faced with the all the kid’s needs? Your spouse’s needs? Or as a single parent, the weight of it all? Time and deadlines? Messy relationships? Finances requiring miracles or ongoing health issues?

‘Hear, O Lord, and have mercy on me; Lord, be my helper!’ Psalm 30:10 NKJV

I believe God does hear us and is always available as our Helper. He wants us to lean on Him.
