“OvErWhElMeD”


imagesIf the dog barks one more time…

If I hear “Momma” again…

If someone starts crying again…

If one more person asks me for milk…

If I find someone playing in the water one more time…

If the dog goes to the bathroom in the house again…

If one more person gets out of bed…

If someone asks me for a snack again…

If one more person tells me something that their sibling did…

If I find the baby digging in the trash again…

OvErWhElMeD…ever been there? Yeah, me too…about 3 minutes ago! 🙂 All of us, no matter the stage of life or position we are in, find ourselves overwhelmed at some point and time. All seems bleak, hopeless, discouraging, insurmountable – and yet, that’s when the Lord seems to get our attention and say, “You are overwhelmed…it happens, but there is a place to run when you don’t think you can go one more minute in your day or situation. Take a minute and give Me your burden…rest in Me.”

“Hear my cry, O God; attend unto my prayer. From the end of the earth will I cry unto thee, when my heart is overwhelmed: lead me to the rock that is higher than I. For thou hast been a shelter for me, and a strong tower from the enemy. I will abide in thy tabernacle for ever: I will trust in the covert of thy wings. Selah. … So will I sing praise unto thy name for ever, that I may daily perform my vows.” (Psalm 61:1-4, 8)

No matter what you may have faced, will face today or tomorrow…there’s a place to run…allow the Lord to be your shelter and tower. Take a minute and give Him all that overwhelms you…you’ll be surprised what a brighter outlook you’ll have…until someone needs lunch, and the baby is screaming, and the dog needs to go out, and… (lol) then run to Him again…He’s always there, and He never gets overwhelmed by us!!!!
