Have you ever had one of those weeks that was terribly exhausting?  Unfortunately, that is how my week has been thus far.  Is it Friday yet?  Sometimes life catches up with us, and we find ourselves needing to recover from its everyday challenges.   

Thankfully, as I take each step, I know that I am not alone.  There is Someone walking right there beside me, which is such an incredible thought and so important to remember.  For some reason though, it is an easy fact to forget.  Throughout life's craziness, we fail to remember such a simple truth--God is always there to take our heavy burdens (Psalm 55:22).  We do not have to deal with everything on our own.

I faced such a situation this week.  I found myself needing the peace that only God can bring, and I began to pray that the Lord would calm my heart--He did.  Once again, I realized that I do not have walk into the storm alone.  He will go there with me and help me get through it.

As always, a song from years ago came to mind this week.  Andy Chrisman's words reminded me that the Lord wants to take part in all we do.  He delights in talking to us and helping us, and His grace and mercy are never ending.  He is our "Atmosphere."
