Overwhelmed

Do you ever feel like your head is in a whirlwind? Like there's not enough time in one day to get everything done? Sometimes I get tired of all the tasks, duties and expectations. I wish I could get away from it all.

Recently things in my life have just felt too heavy to carry. Lately it feels like there are too many things weighing me down. The worries and obstacles in my life sometimes get the best of me and it's hard to overcome all the bumps and dips in the road. I feel like with every high there is another low just waiting to follow. It's hard persevering when you're worried you'll make a wrong choice or mess something up.



Maybe you have been feeling overwhelmed. Maybe you feel like your life will never let up? You always seem to have worries and problems to bear? Sometimes it's easy to look at our life and ask God why you have so much to carry. You wonder if there is an end to a constant uphill road that you seem to be trudging. Well, there is an end to all the worries, fears and problems you are facing. One day you will reap what you are sowing. The going may seem hard now, but in the end it will all be made right. One day you will have relief from all you are carrying.

Often times it feels like it's so hard to do what is right and stand firm when all you want to do is give up. Persevering is hard and sometimes takes everything out of you, but in the end it will all make sense. God's got a plan for your circumstances and He's even using the most daunting situations for good. Focus on what will last for eternity and don't get caught up in the desires of the world. Do your best to live a life that will outlast your earthly existence and leave a legacy that God will be proud of. The bumpy road of this life will come to an end, but what you did with pure intentions and for God will last forever.

Your life may seem like it's more than you can handle, but give it to God- He will help you. Things may seem foggy and uncertain, but there is purpose to God's plan for your life-so seek Him with your future. Sometimes our lives feel so heavy with all that we are carrying because we haven't asked God for His help. Don't lose hope, your struggles down here on this life will one day end and you will be rewarded for all the pain, suffering and heartaches you experienced. Persevere till the end and don't give up, God's with you and He will help you through even the darkest valley.

James 1:12
Blessed is the man who perseveres under trial, because when he has stood the test, he will receive the crown of life that God has promised to those who love him.

Hebrews 12:1-2
Let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us. Let us fix our eyes on Jesus, the author and perfector of our faith.
