First of all thanks for supporting my blog by reading and commenting! I appreciate you.
So we all know that no one is exempt from feeling overwhelmed. Some of us are chronic sufferers of this and can't seem to find our way out of it. I know for me I deal with this a lot because I tend to be a bit of a control freak. I want to make all the right decisions right now so that I make sure I only have good things happen in the future. I try to think of all the different ways my decisions can effect my life and I try to find the ONE perfect decision that will make my life problem free! Can you relate?
I know I'm not the only one. That is exactly why we get overwhelmed. We get too busy on the inside trying to avoid problems, pain, hurt, disappointment and whatever else we deem to be negative. We overthink everything, we over-analyze EVERYTHING! No wonder we get tired and start feeling overwhelmed.
The ONE thing we need to do when we get overwhelmed is to GO BACK TO THE BASICS. Matthew 6:33 says seek ye first the kingdom of God and all of these things will be added unto you. #1 God is basically saying "drop everything and look at Me". Literally--He's erasing your entire t0-do list and writing His name at the top! So how do we do that practically? You do all the things you were doing when you first met Him and fell in love. Read your Bible, sing to God, talk to Him in prayer--simplify! The amazing thing is that the reason you're overwhelmed is because you've decided that you were God and started doing His job for Him by trying to run your own life. What Matthew 6:33 is saying to you is stop doing God's job--let Him be God and stay in your lane!
That's it. Love you.
