Growing Faint 

Ps. 61:2: From the ends of the earth I call to you, I call as my heart goes faint; lead me to the rock that is higher than I (NIV).

How often do we cry out for security and strength? As a parent, probably often! There will be times we will have to be led to a rock higher than ourselves so we can see beyond our present struggles to the future God has in store for us. Sometimes we have to be lifted up to see life from God's eternal perspective. In this passage, David recognizes the higher "rock" as a place of safety and power and he knows only God can lead him there.

Parenting can sometimes make you feel faint-hearted, but God wants you to use those times to pray to Him for security and strength. James 1:5 says that those who ask will be given wisdom. Wisdom is one way God lifts you up to the higher rock.

Remember, you are never confined to your present situation. Trust God to lift you to a higher place and give you His eternal perspective!
