There are days. There are moments. There are times when you just feel overwhelmed.

There are times when no matter how many cutbacks you’ve made, no matter how many pennies you’ve pinched, there just isn’t enough check for the budget needs.

There are mornings when physical pain greets you and mental strain beats you.

There are so many distractions that your reactions become smaller and smaller.

There is drama in the social feeds and drama in the things we “need.”

I don’t know about you but there are days, there are moments, there are times when I just feel overwhelmed.

Let me ask you a question…..

When was the last time you felt overwhelmed.….by the Creator of this Universe?

When was the last time you hit pause on all of the above and just took a moment to consider the wonder of a child being born, nature, the human body and how if you’re breathing right this moment, there’s a reason to celebrate.

When was the last time, no matter what you feel like at this very moment, you considered how ordained and providential each one of the steps you take have been?

A few weeks ago I stood in church and was overwhelmed in worship. I wasn’t enjoying a performance, I was moved to a place of being overwhelmed by the knowledge that..

I am created for a purpose

I am loved by God

I am redeemed.

I am blessed to have each minute of each day I am here.

Today I choose to be overwhelmed not by the trappings, drama, struggles and pains of this life…

I choose to be overwhelmed by the One that created me.

I choose to be overwhelmed by the knowledge that He “knit me together.”

I choose to be overwhelmed not by what I have, but what I’ve been given.

If I’m going to be overwhelmed, let me be overwhelmed by that.

Be overwhelmed today.
