Embrace that you have things you can’t control. We all have a list of them.
Life is overwhelming sometimes. We are Overwhelmed by the immensities within ourselves & the immensities of life, outside ourselves. We are overwhelmed by the depth of unresolved questions, the largeness of the information we are supposed to process, the many possibilities, the uncertainties, the concepts we are supposed to correctly interpret, the million & one best choices we've got to make.
Overwhelmed powerfully by our emotions, unable to help ourselves sometimes, helpless to ourselves as regards our own emotions. Overwhelmed by our falls and the struggle to get back up.
Overwhelmed by ‘trying to make it all work out’ somehow, ‘trying to get everything done in time’. Overwhelmed by ‘trying too hard’, Overwhelmed by ‘not trying’ , Overwhelmed by ‘trying not to try’. Truth be told, it gets tiring. But here’s the thing, You’re not odd and your case isn’t the exception.Your struggle is not uncommon. Even Jesus’s heart was heavy by the reality of the suffering that awaited Him.
‘My Father, if it is possible, let this chalice pass away from me. Yet truly, let it not be as I will but as you will. (Matthew 26:39)
But Here’s the thing, everything is better with God & everything is lighter with God. ‘For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light’ (Mathew 11:30).
Stick to God & you will find rest for your soul. Cast all your cares on Him. He cares for you.
