Have you ever felt like the Savior has asked too much from you? maybe he extended a church calling you thought was beyond your abilities. Maybe He blessed (“blessed”) you with children whose personalities and habits are difficult for you to understand. Maybe you have health problems that seem overwhelming.

This certainly gives me things to ponder, and go the the Lord about. Maybe there is more answer than I recognize right now.
