Show of hands—Who’s had enough of this month? ME!!! Between meetings, evaluations, appointments, school programs and specials, these past few weeks have been a busy blur. I’m constantly thinking. Okay, what’s on the agenda today? Where do I have to be at what time? I get nervous thinking I’m going to miss something important like a kid’s awards assembly or an appointment. Little sleep and lots of coffee. I’m overwhelmed.
But…God wants me to be overwhelmed, just not in the manner I’m in. A different overwhelmed. He knows I’m not doing this right. I’m not supposed to be frustrated. Should never lose my peace. Nope. I’m living life in my own strength and that’s not what God told me to do.
Eph. 6:10 Be strong in the Lord and in the power of His might.
His strength not mine. His power.
Then I thought about how- when God does things – He goes BIG! He’s an overwhelming God. When He thinks of me, His thoughts outnumber the sand. When He forgives my wrong-doings, He casts them into the sea of forgetfulness. He gives me life, and it’s everlasting. He lavishes me with love, and it’s unfailing. He overwhelms me.
So whatever is burdening you, remember that when God shows up, He goes BIG. You’re not forgotten, He’s engraved you on the palms of His hands. (Isaiah 49:16) You’re not alone. Even when your feel foundation is trembling, He’s the Rock of Ages and will uphold you.
Be overwhelmed, friend.
