Overwhelmed by God
Dear one, are you weary and overcome with emotion in your current situation? You are not alone!
We will all be overwhelmed; it’s inevitable. We will have seasons of busyness, times of trouble, and days of doubt. Yet, in God’s grace and mercy, He gives us a choice, an important choice that affects everything else in our life.
We can choose what will overwhelm us…the world or our Lord!
We can be overwhelmed by the world.
This leads to stress, worry, fear, anxiety, busyness, health problems, chaos and death–every negative, painful emotion we can have.
We can be overwhelmed by God!
This leads us to peace, joy, and everlasting strength; calm, serenity, and tranquility–every good and perfect gift that our Father offers.
Let’s choose our loving Father!
Are you overwhelmed? Are your current circumstances more than you can handle on your own? Do you just feel weary and worn down?
There is comfort and peace in Christ! He is bigger than the problem and more powerful than the circumstance. He is with you and wants to give you rest.
Find peace in Him and trust His timing. Let Him replace your weariness with strength, your doubts with awe of Him, your fear with faith, and your turmoil with His perfect peace~be overwhelmed by Him!
Prayer at HIS feet
Lord, as I am overwhelmed and overcome…let me be overwhelmed and overcome only by You! Help me keep the problems of this world, and my temporary struggles in perspective. Teach me to see everything through Your eyes and from Your eternal vantage point. Strengthen me to remember You are my strength, my protector, my very present help in times of trouble.
You are loved, my friend, and you are never alone. I pray you are abundantly blessed and encouraged today.
