There is Strength in the Lord
I have been pastoring for well over 36 years now and I'm not sure that I have ever seen a time in my ministry when so many of God's people seem to be dealing with so much in their lives.  There have always been burdens.  There have always been trials.  Sickness has always come and life has always presented its challenges.  But it's almost like the thermostat has been turned up several degrees higher these days and it isn't just a scattering of people dealing with things but it's everyone it seems.  Yet, the one constant in it all is that the strength found in the Lord is undiminished.  We read in the news of shortages of funds for certain things, but I'm so thankful there is never a shortage of strength that the Lord has for His children.  Psalm 81:5 says, Blessed is the man whose strength is in thee; in whose heart are the ways of them.  Happy is the person who has realized that their strength rests in the Lord alone.  Oh, happy day when we realize that we can't face life in our own ability.  When we figure out it isn't by our own means that we'll survive all this world puts on us and realize our strength lies in the Lord.  He is the One who will get us through all that life puts on us.  If you haven't realized it today, there is strength in the Lord for you.
