word for the overwhelmed

Lately, I've been struggling with feeling overwhelmed

Have you

(It seems like it's been a common theme lately for so many of us.)

But, I can tell you with complete confidence that we don't have to feel that way.

We don't have to be ruled by our feelings, by our emotions.

We can choose to believe in the promise of our great and powerful God -

that we can do all things through Him that gives us strength! (phil.4:13)

that His mercies are new every morning! (lam 3:22-23)

that we are more than conquerors through Him who loves us! (rom 8:37)

that the Lord will accomplish what concerns us today! (ps 138:8)


So, hang on, my friend! God is in your corner!

He is working it all out for your good.

Let the words of this song wash over you. Let Him encourage your heart today!
