When my anxious thoughts multiply within me, Your consolations delight my soul. Ps 94:19
I woke up this morning overwhelmed. The cares of my heart were many. Anxious thoughts seemed to be multiplying exponentially. That quickly spiraled downward into a feeling of being completely overwhelmed. then I got out of bed. and it all got worse.
yup, its been one of those days. more than I can handle. more than I CARE to handle. Thanks to all of those of you who have been praying for me today.
Work has been chaos. My mind is overwhelmed knowing that I’m moving tonight to a new apartment and i’m not ready for it. I”m discouraged because I want to be losing weight faster. I want relationships to be easy. Some days its so hard to just keep fighting and pushing onward in this race we call the Christian life. Today is one of those days. One foot in front of the other… one step at a time. And even that seems almost too much to bear.
I’m grateful that in my weakness, I can look to my Rock who never changes, no matter what storms prevail. He’s bigger than confusion. He’s bigger than my pain. He’s bigger than my brokenness.
Thanks to Jessica for passing along this quote earlier today… it was very helpful to my anxious soul…
So he supplies perfectly measured grace to meet the needs of the godly. For daily needs there is daily grace; for sudden needs, sudden grace; for overwhelming need, overwhelming grace. God’s grace has given wonderfully, but not wastefully; freely but not foolishly; bountifully but not blindly. -John Blanchard
