I was comforted when I read Simeon Zahl's entry in my daily devotion book where he wrote about the account of Elijah from First Kings, Chapter 19.
Zahl said that Elijah was "doing his very best to have a Thelma & Louise moment." Elijah was so low that he asked God to end his life.
God didn't do that and instead of bawling him out, God had compassion on him and said, "The journey is too great for you."
God doesn't tell Elijah to put on his big boy pants and get back to the great job appointed him, and he doesn't guilt trip him, either.
Instead, Zahl says, "God just gives him cake. And lets him sleep. And then gives him cake again."
I could put the rest in my own words but why try when Zahl says it so very well:
It is humiliating to hear that sometimes, when we think we are wrestling with angels, we are mainly just tired and hungry...The worst attack of anxiety we can experience is, in the end, mainly the product of a couple of temporary chemical reactions in the chest and stomach.
