When You Feel Overwhelmed by Holly Gerth

Demands knock on my door.
Burdens beckon me to answer.
The to-do list stretches for miles.

I whisper, “I feel overwhelmed.”
And in the stillness it seems I hear…

“Child, open your heart to Me
instead of the demands of the day.
Lay those burdens at My feet, not on your shoulders.
Let go of your list and dare to embrace My grace.
I do not require you to be overwhelmed.
I enable you to overcome.
And with Me, you always will.”

I have told you these things, so that in Me you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world. John 16:33
