By John Miltenberger 5/24/2017 But Jesus said to him, “No one, having put his hand to the plow, and looking back, is fit for the kingdom of God.” [Luke 9:62; NKJV] I’ve often had the unsettling experience of trying on clothing at a store, only to get home and find it no longer seems to fit as well, or look as appealing as it did when I first tried it on. I’m not sure why …

When life is chaotic, painful, or full of uncertainty, it is easy to become overwhelmed. Exhaustion wears a person down, both physically and spiritually. And without time in the Word, depression is certain to knock on our door.
