Straight from My Notebook

Sometimes life feels like it is too much. We feel BLAH. Overwhelmed. Tired. Tattered.

And it is. It is too much. I can’t fix all of the things that go wrong.

I think this is right where Jesus wants us. He never promises that life won’t be too much. Suffering happens.  When we are living for Him, we are guaranteed suffering.

So, when life gets overwhelming, what do we do?

  1. Rest
  2. Move
  3. Read Scripture

Instead of drowning in life, I drown in Scripture. God speaks while I read.

Instead of being restless, I rest. God heals while I sleep.

Instead of moving to keep up, I move to exercise. God restores while I move.

These things, coupled with prayer, make a difference. The give me resilience to trust Jesus. He has my best interest in mind. He will not withhold any good thing from me.

And I will not withhold any need from Him.
