Overwhelmed can be debilitating… BUT it doesn’t have to be.
Can you remember a time you felt overwhelmed? Was it in college when you had more on your plate than you could handle? or was it when you were trying to get 5 kids out the door for school before 8AM? or maybe you had a really big team project at work and you were the only one on the team?
Whenever it was that you felt overwhelmed, the mountain in front of you must have seemed a little too big to handle. And the longer you looked at it, the worse you felt and the harder it got… or so it seemed. Just as a hiker getting ready to go on a mountain trek must prepare, you must prepare. So that overwhelm doesn’t sneak in, never mind take over. The hiker can pack an extra water bottle & shirt, some snacks, warm socks, their compass and wear they’re best hiking boots.
How can you prepare? Make a list, ask for help, say no to a few things, pray? Whatever it is for you… ensure you have what you need… take care of yourself, look at the little things, keep an eye on the goal and walk in Him.
Be the Light
Pray, Trust, Wait
