Are you overwhelmed with responsibility?


Have you ever felt so overwhelmed with responsibility, that you did not know where to begin? There are times in life where you just don’t know what direction to take, or how to maintain balance. Unexpected circumstances happen, and you may feel like life has bombarded you with decisions, tasks, and new responsibilities. It’s hard to know how to juggle everything when you already had a ‘full plate’. How do you handle all of these sudden changes in your routine? Many times we become so stressed, we cause headaches, sickness, or lack of sleep. Why do we do this? We are human, and often times we feel like we are required to figure out how to handle these additional life situations. We must recognize our mistake in this type of thinking. We are not capable of handling these overwhelming circumstances on our own. In fact, we are not capable of handling life in general, on our own. We must seek Jesus to help us. We must be in prayer about every circumstance, every emotion, and every new thing we face. God is with us…always. He is ready to guide us and give us the directions…but we must be willing to ask. We must surrender the control to the One who is in control. God is God and we are not. God will make a way, when we cannot foresee it. Trust in the Father. Ask Jesus to carry you…and allow the peace that surpasses all understanding…to flow over you.

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 path. PROVERBS 3:5-6

Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus. PHILIPPIANS 4:6-7

God is with us.
