Do you ever feel overwhelmed? Is life dishing out more than you can handle? Are your days full or do you never seem to get everything on your todo list accomplished? Is today’s list longer than yesterday’s and yesterday’s list longer than the list the day before?
It may seem counter productive to stop what you are doing and spend time alone with God. But time in God’s presence is the exactly remedy for your situation.
Jesus said, “Come to me all of you who are weary and carry heavy burdens and I will give you rest.” (Matthew 11:28, NLT)
When we stop, and spend time with God, He takes the weight of our circumstances and transfers it to his arms, leaving us to feel lighter and able. When we choose to spend time with Jesus, we actually have more time and energy to accomplish other things.
What do you do when you feel overwhelmed? Why not spend a few minutes in prayer, reading your bible or quietly alone with God. I think you will find it a worthwhile investment.
