My father-in-law's main home sat vacant for many years; it may have become overwhelming because it was a lot to maintain for one person. Now that Richard and I have moved in, I can understand his frustration; I can work all day, and it looks like I've barely made a dent. However, little by little, we are making progress. Now that we are comfortable, it's nearing the time to start the remodeling process, which includes digging up and replacing pipes. I'm insistent that we not move off the property; I've grown attached, so I've been fervently cleaning an accessory building as a temporary dwelling. I'm finally beginning to see the light at the end of the tunnel! It will not be easy, but nothing good is ever easy.
If you are overwhelmed by your situation, don't give up; keep moving forward. God's plan for you is beyond your comprehension. Seek his guidance. There are no humans or other gods that can help you. He alone is your provider, and nothing you do will be worth the effort if you don't put him first in your life. Sometimes progress is slow, but if you want to stall it forever, try focusing on something other than God. He expects you to acknowledge him in everything you do, whether large or small. Don't forget who gave you the breath of life!
“You are my witnesses,” declares the LORD, “and my servant whom I have chosen, that you may know and believe me and understand that I am he. Before me no god was formed, nor shall there be any after me. I, I am the LORD, and besides me there is no savior. Isaiah 43:10-11
