I feel so overwhelmed. I just do not think I can handle one more thing. How can I stay strong?
Trust God! If you are a believer then simply believe. He loves you and knows your needs even before you ask. He shall supply all your needs. (Philippians 4:19) We have all heard the saying “God only gives us what we can handle” sometimes it feels like there is no way we can handle it. Terrible things do happen here, we lose a spouse, a child our health and finances. Life here on earth can feel overwhelming. Concentrate on what is the most important your assurance that you are saved and He loves you. (Acts2:21) All things will work out for good for those who love God.
Simplify, we can all get over busy in this world. Prioritize your day. Make sure you have time for God each day. Act in a manner that honors Him. Make sure each day you have time to take care of you, your relationship with your spouse, your children and work. If you don’t have time for these priorities cut the frivolous stuff out. Even Bible studies can be too much if we do not have our basics covered. Simplify, having time in your day to just exhale is very important. If you are too busy you will more easily feel overwhelmed. Simplify, cover your priorities and trust Gods love for you.
Jeremiah 29:11 “For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, says the Lord, thoughts of peace and not of evil, to give you a future and a hope.”
Philippians 4:13 “I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me. ”
I like another common saying, “Less is more!”.
