Overwhelmed

You are just finished dealing with one thing and the next hardship already comes along. Or, you are still in the middle of battling with one issue while another — and maybe yet another — is added upon your shoulder. You feel overwhelmed. You know you won’t be able to cope with all of this much longer. You have come to the end of your rope.

Ever felt this way before?

This is how I have felt yesterday morning. Then the LORD brought something to my mind — something my old Pastor used to say often, mostly during our prayer meetings. He said that especially in times like these we need to look up to the One who can change things, the One who loves us so deeply, and who cares for us and our sorrows. We need to go to His Word. And then he shared that, in situations like these, he often goes to Psalm 91, reads and prays its words. That’s exactly what I did on Tuesday morning and I urge you to do the same.

If you feel like you have come to the end of your rope today, get your Bible out — even if it is dusty — and start reading the healing Word of God. Why not start with Psalm 91 and keep on going, reading a little more each day?

    Yeah, I just posted about one of those days, and the week isn’t getting any better with our holiday coming this Thursday (Thanksgiving). But, I realize I need to go with the flow and things will work out.

      Thank you, Lori, for stopping by and taking the time to read and reply.
      I love Thanksgiving. Yes, these times can get a bit hectic and chaotic, even more when faced with things going wrong. So sorry to read about the problems you are having with your fridge. I hope all goes well for you Wednesday so this burden is lifted off your shoulders.
      Happy Thanksgiving!
