115. Feeling Overwhelmed? Stand Strong!
R U feeling overwhelmed? When you focus on the problems surrounding you instead of trusting God, exhaustion will overwhelm you. Melissa (not her real name) texted this morning. She expressed her devastation over her step-sons loneliness; his drinking, use of drugs, lack of finances and overall lack of will to live, brought Melissa to that point.
God didn't design Melissa to fight battles in secrecy or alone. She lacked the power to predict her future. So do you and I. God alone has the power.
When the burden you have overwhelms you, you are going be tempted to give in. God does not want you to back out of difficult situations, but to face them as you lean on Him. God does not want you to give away your integrity. If you run away, you'll miss out invaluable learning from the Father.
Melissa read again how God is committed to her success. Focus, commitment and trust needs to be in Him. Him alone. You need to trust Him and stand on His words. Proverbs 3:5-7 "Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge Him and He shall direct your paths. Do not be wise in your own eyes; fear the Lord and depart from evil." Life truly is full of challenging experiences that continue to test you. Shift your focus on God. This allows Him to direct your paths.
