The Gift of Being Overwhelmed

  1. It is so tempting to pull back from the things that make us feel overwhelmed and powerless, and sometimes we do have too much on our plate. But your right that we need to go first to Jesus to receive what we need in moving forward. Self-protectiveness is not always the best way to proceed. Thanks for sharing your wisdom!

  2. What a good reminder! Having struggled with my own feelings of overwhelm this week, I appreciated the positive focus.

  3. This is my prayer today inspired by you: God keep me from the danger of living a self-sufficient life.

    The reminder is true. We are not supposed to be capable all the time. If we were, we would not need God and what a scary and impossible place that would be to live. I am also praying that you also get a little less overwhelmed. Maybe just…whelmed.

  4. I’m reminded of that verse that says something like “when I am overwhelmed, lead me to the rock that is higher than I”.

  5. Wow this is precious and convicting. Knowing that being overwhelmed shows me, shows us, our inherent weakness and causes us to look at Jesus, to look at God and behold His might and power, to behold the power of the Holy Spirit to give us joy and peace, is humbling and amazing at the same time. It really does take our eyes off of ourselves and puts them on Him who can do anything and has ALL the power! <3 Thank you so so much. I need to remember this when I get overwhelmed and always.
