"I (sob) can't (sob) do this (sob, sob) anymore. (Exhausted sob)"
"You don't have to."
"No (sob) really. I can't pray about this anymore, I don't have any more thoughts I can think to move forward. (sob) I quit."
"Don't think any more. I am your Mind. Let me think for you. Don't panic. I am here. I will see you out."
When I awakened, I was no longer panicked. Nothing had changed problem-wise. But I didn't feel so isolated and alone in the struggle. That clear message, coming from divine Love, of the presence of Mind, comforted me. T that moment I heard it as Love, God, saying, "I am your Mind. Let me think for you. Don't panic. I am here. Let me guide you out."
The great prophet Elijah had a similar experience feeling desperate, exhausted, and alone in the world. With an enemy, Jezebal, breathing her intentions to kill him down his neck, he walked deep into the wilderness. The Bible says, "He stopped and sat down in the shade of a tree and wished he would die. 'It's too much, Lord,' he prayed. 'Take away my life; I might as well be dead!'" (See I Kings, chapter 19)
Then he lay down under the tree and fell asleep. We are told that, "Suddenly an angel touched him and said, 'Wake up and eat.' He looked around and saw a loaf of bread and a jar of water near his head. He ate and drank, and lay down again. The Lord's angel returned and woke him up a second time, saying, 'Get up and eat, or the trip will be too much for you.' Elijah got up, ate and drank, and the food gave him enough strength to walk forty days to Sinai, the holy mountain."
It was on this mountain in a cave, at the end of this forty day journey taken in the strength of the angel-food, that Elijah witnessed an earthquake, wind and fire. He learned that there was no God - no Life, Truth, intelligence, nor substance - in any of these symptoms of evil. The still, small voice of Truth broke through to him and he heard very specific instructions that would enable him to go forward and finish his mission in total security.
Mind saw me out, until I saw it, too.
If you are dealing with a particular struggle that has you feeling trapped, cornered, with no way out, allow Mind to get a grip on you. Listen to the still small voice breaking through the earthquake, wind and fire of panic. It is saying to you;
"I am your Mind. Let me think for you. Don't panic. I am here. I will see you out."
