Feeling Overwhelmed?

Perhaps you are feeling overwhelmed by just stuff. Perhaps you’re doing mighty fine. Either way this devotional will speak encouragement to you. If you don’t feel like you need it today you can tuck it away for a rainy day. Reposted from Holley Gerth’s blog.

i am with you“I sit on the back porch and stare out over open space. The scene is serene but inside my mind it’s a different story. I think of all that’s coming then I whisper these words, “I don’t know if I can do this.”

I don’t know if I have the strength.

I don’t know if I have the perseverance.

I don’t know if I have the wisdom.

Have you ever felt that way too?

Thankfully when Jesus said we could do all things through Him it included this. It included right now.

We don’t have to be strong because He says, “I will strengthen you and help you.” {Is. 41:10}

We don’t have to do this alone because He promises, “I will be with you…because I love you.” {Is 43:2-4}

We don’t have to figure everything out because He assures us, “I will teach you the way you should go.” {Ps. 32:8}

This is the secret that can empower us on the days when we feel overwhelmed, the truth we can hold on to when we get discouraged, the wild mystery that lifts life’s weight from our shoulders: It’s not about what we have in us; it’s about Who. Nothing is impossible for Him–which means with Him nothing is impossible for us too.”
