There is Strength in the Lord
I remember reading a little story about a dad who asked his son to move a rock out of the way.  The son tried his best to lift it, but it was just too heavy.  The dad asked him, "Son, are you sure you're using all your strength?" The son replied, "Yes, dad, I am."  And, again the boy tried with all his might to lift the rock to move it out of the way, but couldn't.  Once again the dad said to him, "Son, I don't think you're using all your strength.  Are you sure you are?" The boy frustrated and exhausted from trying said, "Dad, I have been using all my strength.  What else could I do?"  The dad said, "You weren't using all your strength because you never asked me to help you.  If you would have asked I would have helped you move that rock."  You know, we are the same way.  We'll do our best in our own strength to carry our burdens, but never ask the Lord to help us with them. If we only ask Him, He will come to our aid and help us carry those heavy loads that we aren't able to carry ourselves.  I thank God today that there is strength in the Lord.  What are you trying to carry all by yourself today?  Let Him help you carry it.
