Overwhelmed

Overwhelmed

Lord, I feel completely overwhelmed

Today I’m going to;

Pick a task and know that with You, it’s not too big

Compared to Your greatness, this task isn’t a forest, but a twig

Beautiful evening in Mississauga fishing off of the Port Credit rocks

When in the midst of the forest, it is easy to get lost in thinking about the magnitude of the forest and the innumerable trees; We may get glimpses of the sun shining through the tops of the trees, but it is our nature to worry about how we will ever get out of the tangles instead of just taking our very next step.

In fact, focusing on how lost we are can cripple us to the point that we cannot take a step in any direction. It is hard to know where to start when things seem out of control, whether it be taking care of your home, finances, family, a project at work, etc. Remember that Our Father carries our burdens with us and He is the compass that leads us, guides us and has planned our every moment of every day.

Ex 29:30  See; I am sending an angel ahead of you to guide you along the way and to bring you to the place that I have prepared (for you).

Feeling Alone

Lord, I feel so Alone

Today I’m going to… 

Look outside and see the morning sky

Remembering that God is good, He’s perfect and He’s nigh

Feeling alone

Feeling Alone

Today is a new day.  Jesus teaches us to live today for today and not to carry the burdens of our past – mistakes, wrongs, regrets. The past is His – just give it to Him. Today is not tomorrow, so there is no need to be anxious and throughout the bible, God urges us to trust Him in faith for all of our days. 

Our Heavenly Father promises us that our future is full of hope in His hands. Embrace His love as He loves you every minute of your existence. Step outside and take a deep breath, let our Father’s love spill over you like the warmth of a warm oil that fills you with peace and joy. Sigh out your worries in thanks to God, knowing that all is in His loving, precious hands.

Rom 8:28  And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose.
