Feeling overwhelmed is typical for apprentices who have begun to encounter the challenges of learning a new skill. Honestly, that sense of feeling overwhelmed isn’t limited to apprentices. We have all experienced it at one time or another: a rush of challenging circumstances, the pain of life in this less than perfect world, a steep learning curve as we step into a new role. Like overwhelmed apprentices, we need someone to come alongside us, encourage us, help us walk through the obstacles we face, and show us the way forward. The writer of Hebrews knew that. Do you? Where do you need someone to come alongside you? Is there someone who needs you to come alongside them as well?
And let us consider how we may spur one another on toward love and good deeds. – Hebrews 10:24-25
Prayer: God, teach me to humbly and gratefully receive the support and guidance others offer me. And let me humbly and compassionately come alongside those who are feeling overwhelmed. In Jesus’ name, amen.
