When You're Overwhelmed By Life

For the past few months, I've been overwhelmed.

It's not been some traumatic accident or huge change in anything - it's just life.

You know exactly what I mean, don't you.

There are days when you meet yourself going out the door as you're trying desperately to get back in.

You're convinced you just did laundry this morning, but the basket is full and the closet is empty.

Where once you sat and relaxed with pure abandon, you now pass by with wistful glances.

When the time comes to shut your mind off, it's already figuring out the work schedule for tomorrow, the dinner menu for the rest of the week and how to fit in one more Etsy order before you keel over.

It's time like this that I realize outside forces are wreaking havoc on my insides. And I will not stand for this any longer.

Now the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, that ye may abound in hope, through the power of the Holy Ghost. Romans 15:13

And isn't that what we're really looking for: joy, peace, hope and power? Those are the things promised to us when we put God first and life second. Nothing else matters, nothing else compares.

So what are we to do when we're overwhelmed? Those are the moments we cleave to the God of hope and allow Him to fill us with all the good things we've been missing.
