The transition was difficult and tiring.
I was not accustomed to the overwhelming amount
Of responsibilities and workload.
My strength seemed to have run out long before I started.
I was frustrated to the point of wanting to quit–
But, somehow I have not quit.
And the transition is becoming easier to handle.
Let me tell you what I did:
I went to the throne of Grace,
and there before me was the Great High Priest,
He told me that He can sympathize with all of my weaknesses,
That He has been tempted like me, only without sin.
And through my tears, I formed only enough words to say,
“Jesus, I need Your grace. I can’t do it anymore on my own.”
He looked at me, with compassion in His eyes, and said,
“Aisha, the grace I give you will be sufficient enough that you
won’t ever have to do things on your own. I promise you that
My grace will help you in the time of need.”
