Life can be overwhelming sometimes. The small day-to-day things can pile up like an insurmountable mountain and naturally, the bigger things can become like deep waters, swirling us under with each crash of the waves. I don’t like these places- big or small, any amount of being overwhelmed isn’t fun or joyful. BUT. It’s in these places we can be led to a Rock that is higher than us, stronger than us and there for us. They say it’s not the healthy that need a doctor but the sick, the weak…wouldn’t this classify the overwhelmed too??
A prayer- Gracious God, thank you for being higher than us. You, Your ways…thank You for being the Rock that can support, guide and hold us up when we are climbing steep mountains or drowning in life’s circumstances. You are the rock available for us to stand on, lean on, hold on to, be covered by, etc… thank YOU! Help us to go to You when we are overwhelmed. To seek you, to surrender to You, to humble our hearts, minds and souls before You and let You be our Rock. Not this world, not our families or friends, not our material possessions or accomplishments, but YOU. In Jesus name, AMEN.
